We want you to participate in SPSCC social media, while abiding by our SPSCC Social Media Code of Conduct:

  • Be respectful.
  • Be honest.
  • Respect copyright and fair use.
  • Unsolicited or unauthorized advertising (including advertising of non SPSCC services or products) and promotional materials are not permitted.
  • Derogatory comments, including racially or sexually motivated, and sexually explicit materials are not permitted.

Users are fully responsible for the content they load on any social media sites affiliated with SPSCC. By submitting content to any SPSCC social media sites, users understand and acknowledge that this information is available to the public, and that the college may choose to use this information for internal and external promotional purposes.

Please note that other participants may use posted information beyond the control of SPSCC. 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 college's social media sites.

SPSCC has the right to remove any content for any reason. If content is deemed threatening, profane, obscene, derogatory, a violation of intellectual property rights or privacy laws, off-topic, promotion of organizations, programs, services or products not related to the college, or otherwise misleading, damaging or illegal – it will be removed from the thread. If an individual violates a policy more than once the college reserves the right to remove the poster from all SPSCC social media sites.

If the posting is in violation of the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities, the matter will be referred to the office of the Vice President for Student Services.

Purpose: 

The purpose of SPSCC's social media and affiliated accounts are to provide a convenient place where current and prospective students, alumni, and the community can easily connect and learn about topics related to SPSCC.
