The College of Education at Illinois has sites on several social media outlets, including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Flickr. These sites are monitored and maintained by the Communications Group in the College of Education.

Social Media Statement
The social media sites represented on the College of Education at Illinois homepage (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Flickr) are monitored and maintained by the Communications Group in the College of Education. Comments, links, photos, and videos are welcome on those sites. All postings and comments should be relevant to the College community, are reviewed, and are public.

By posting to any of College's social media sites, users understand and acknowledge that this information is available to the public, and that the College may use this information for internal and external promotional purposes. Please note that other participants may use posted information beyond the control of the College of Education at Illinois. Users who do not wish to have information they have made available via these sites used, published, copied and/or reprinted, should not post on the social media sites.

While creative and inventive postings are most welcome, if you wouldn’t share your comments with your family at a holiday dinner, you shouldn’t post them here. We will remove any postings that are offensive, inappropriate, contain insults, illegal suggestions, attacks, commercial advertising, unsolicited self-promotion, SPAM, or solicitations. Comments posted on those sites do not represent the opinions of the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Links to content or other Internet sites should not be construed as an endorsement of the organizations, entities, views or content contained therein. The College of Education at Illinois is not responsible for the content of those external web sites.

Department and Unit Social Media Sites
We invite departments and units to host and maintain their own social media sites, with the following recommendations:

  • You communicate with the Communications Group so that we can give you some pointers we've learned along the way.

  • Create a maintenance and posting plan and assign appropriate student or staff time to fulfill that plan. We don't recommend starting a social media page unless you have the people ready to keep it active and dynamic.

  • Make sure to identify the College of Education and the University of Illinois in the Name of your social media account or page and/or in the About information for your account or page. It is important to identify your affiliation with your home institution.

  • Provide a URL for your unit in the About information for your account or page.

  • Read and adhere to the Social Media Best Practices provided by the Office of Public Affairs.
