COWLEY COUNTY, Kansas – The Kansas Board of Regents is taking another look at its social media policy after some people claim its in violation of free speech.
The policy was approved back in December after a University of Kansas professor tweeted criticisms about the National Rifle Association.
With around 1,700 students attending Southwestern College including its satellite campuses, the private college considers social media just another form of communication that shouldn’t be restricted.
“Sometimes when you try to be very specific on what you’re monitoring and controlling,” said Sara Weinert, Vice President of Communications of Southwestern College. “You do more harm than you do good.”
