Political Campaigns

Page administrators of university-affiliated accounts should not post or repost content of a political organization, leader or representative, or appear to offer endorsements of such.

The University of South Carolina is a nonprofit entity. Due to the designation, there are prohibitions against using university resources to support individual candidates or parties in a political campaign, or their legislative actions. Because of this, university-affiliated accounts should not post or repost content of a political organization, leader or representative, as such a post could be perceived as an endorsement.
