Student-Athletes, Coaches, Staff Interviewed in BDN Article on Social Media Use

University of Maine student-athletes, coaches and staff members were interviewed for a Bangor Daily News article about the use of social media and how it affects UMaine’s Athletics Department. Eileen Flaherty, UMaine’s associate athletics director for compliance, said the university tells student-athletes what they post represents themselves, their family, their school and their team. Flaherty, who meets with each team annually to go over compliance rules, says she tries to instill a skill set so student-athletes make good decisions about their postings. Social media posts are regulated by the UMaine Student-Athlete Code of Conduct and sometimes by team rules, and student-athletes must sign to acknowledge they understand the terms of the university’s written social media policy.
