ASU is an innovative, technologically advanced University and its students are encouraged to use all forms of communication — including social media — to better themselves and their communities. The messages we share on social media can have a powerful impact on our lives and the lives of others.

This need for respect and empathy extends to the way we communicate, especially on social media.
