​Personal use policy

Posting about RISD news and events through your personal accounts can be a great way to promote RISD’s mission and build community. Employees are welcome to share and repost information that the institution communicates online and encouraged to link directly to the information source to ensure accuracy. Your personal post must not suggest that you are speaking on behalf of your department or the institution and you may not use RISD’s name or logo on your personal accounts. Please be careful not to reveal confidential or legally protected information about RISD students, employees or alumni.

When using social media, be mindful of the impact you can have, even unintentionally. While your personal accounts may not indicate that you are employed at RISD, it is easy for others to make the connection. What you post could negatively impact the RISD community and reflect poorly on you.
