Social Media Policy

Applies to: All Members of the Juilliard Community and the Tianjin Juilliard Community (includes all faculty; staff; and incoming students).

Social media provides a broad range of opportunities for sharing information and connecting with your friends, family members and colleagues and can provide a highly effective means for creating new contacts and developing personal and professional relationships. Examples of social media currently include, but are not limited to, WeChat, Weibo, Douyin, Red, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Tumblr, Flickr, SnapChat, Whatsapp, blogs and message boards.

Because social media are such powerful communications tools, your conduct on social media may have a significant impact not only on your own personal and professional reputation, but also on the reputation of Tianjin Juilliard. Improper conduct in the social media space may result in legal repercussions for the School and may expose you to personal liability for your actions. Be thoughtful in decisions to “friend,” “like,” “link,” “follow,” or accept a request from another person. It is important to recognize that there is the potential for misinterpretation of relationships such as faculty/student, staff/student, supervisor/subordinate and doctor/patient in social interactions.

The following guidelines govern your use of the Internet and social media while at Tianjin Juilliard, but do not address every possible situation. This area has experienced, and in all likelihood will continue to experience, rapid change. Always consider the possible repercussions of your actions.

General Guidelines

Be honest about your identity: Never hide your identity if you post anything about Tianjin Juilliard or on behalf of Tianjin Juilliard. In personal posts, you may identify yourself as a Tianjin Juilliard student, faculty or staff member, provided it is truthful information. However, please be clear that you are sharing your views as an individual, and not as a representative of Tianjin Juilliard. For example, if you maintain a personal blog or other social media presence, consider using the following type of disclosure: “I am a student (staff, faculty) at The Tianjin Juilliard School and this is my personal blog. The views and opinions expressed herein are solely my own. I do not represent or speak on behalf of Tianjin Juilliard or any of its faculty or other employees, and Tianjin Juilliard is not responsible for any of the content found on this blog.”
