Policy Statement: 

The procedures developed by each campus system shall be applied based upon the campus at which an individual alleged to have violated the Board of Regents social media policy is employed.  In the event of a joint appointment, the procedure for the campus at which the alleged violation occurred will be applied.  Any changes to implementing procedures at one or both campus systems shall be coordinated with governance and administration on both campuses prior to submission for approval.
