Academic Freedom, Freedom of Expression, and Social Media

Wednesday, April 24, 2024
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Support Services Building (SSB)
Room: 4210

This presentation will address social media expression and activities of faculty members. The session will review data about academics’ social media usage, explain the legal landscape in this new area, explore the differences between academic freedom and free speech, and use case studies to illustrate risks and tips to support faculty colleagues engaging in social media.; When online flare-ups occur - for example, in situations involving public health debates, political issues, or equity, diversity, and inclusion topics - university and hospital administrators are sometimes asked to navigate complex policies and novel situations. The presenters will encourage participants to engage in discussions to promote community understanding in advance of online challenges that may arise. Ideally, after this session, participants will feel more prepared to engage in social media activities for professional purposes, and more empowered to do so in ways that foster safety and well-being.
