The Board of Regents of NMMI has established a Social Media Handbook that provides guidelines for those using any NMMI-related social media community to ensure that everyone understands what behavior is expected and what behavior will not be tolerated. Anyone joining any NMMI-related social media community is expected to read and follow these rules and guidelines and those in the Social Media Handbook. The rules and guidelines are designed to preserve a climate that encourages both civil and fruitful dialogue. NMMI encourages individuals to remember the risks whenever you use the Internet.

The Rules

            1. Don’t challenge or attack others. The discussions and comments are meant to stimulate conversation not to create contention. Let others have their say, just as you may.
            2. Any defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are strictly prohibited. Do not post anything that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you.
           3. Include a signature tag on all messages. Include your name, affiliation, location.
           4. Do not post any information or other material protected by copyright without the permission of the copyright owner. Do not post any videos or photos of minors without the prior permission of the parent(s) or NMMI representatives.
           5. NMMI does not actively monitor sites for inappropriate postings and does not undertake editorial control of postings. However, in the event that any inappropriate posting is brought to the attention of NMMI, we will take all appropriate action.
          6. NMMI is not responsible for the content of external internet sites. You are advised to read the privacy policy of external sites before disclosing any personal information.
