Chalmers community guidelines on social media

On Chalmers' social media, we share content regarding our operations. Everyone should feel welcome to comment and participate in the public conversation. The purpose of our community guidelines is to create a respectful discourse.

Comments

The following conditions pertain to comments on our social media:

This means Chalmers erases comments that are contrary to regulations or are seemed unsuitable in other ways. Chalmers also requires posts to be of acceptable ethical standard. Inspections are made regularly and when posts are published.
  • Chalmers retains the right to remove offensive material from the page when necessary and without pre-warning, information or motivation.
  • You are personally responsible for your comments. If you write something against the law you are responsible for your action. Chalmers reports illegal contributions to the police. Please remember to use a respectful tone when making comments.
