Social Media Guidelines

The Pace Center for Civic Engagement uses social media to promote the work of our programs, weekly service projects and student organizations as a way to foster a collaborative community of civically engaged students at Princeton.

The Pace Center has four main social media channels:

Facebook: @pacecenter, facebook.com/pacecenter
Twitter: @pace_princeton, twitter.com/pace_princeton
Instagram: @pace_princeton
YouTube: youtube.com/activecitizens

All three are managed by the Pace Center’s Communications Coordinator. Student leadership of our five main programs – Breakout Princeton, Community Action, Community House, Pace Council for Civic Values and Student Volunteers Council – works with the Communications Coordinator to establish social media goals and strategy for each program at the start of the academic year. Student leaders may assist the Communications Coordinator with posting content where deemed appropriate by the Communications Coordinator.

To capitalize on the Pace Center’s growing following and allow for greater sharing and cross promotion between our many service opportunities, the Pace Center discourages students from establishing new program social media accounts

Weekly service projects and student organizations formally recognized by the Pace Center may establish their own social media accounts to attract new volunteers, share information and drive awareness. To do so, project or student organization leaders must meet with Communications Coordinator Gwen McNamara prior to setting up any accounts.

The Pace Center encourages students involved with the Pace Center to use their own personal social media channels to promote the civic engagement work and meaningful service they engage in with us. When using your personal social media account to promote work with the Pace Center, you not only represent yourself, but also the Pace Center and Princeton University. 

As such, all students and staff posting to social media around work with the Pace Center must adhere to University social media guidelines and must adhere to all applicable University policies for property, privacy and civility outlined in “Rights, Rules, Responsibilities” and the Princeton University Information Technology Policy, which sets forth the central policies governing all uses of the University’s information technology resources.

The Pace Center reserves the right to remove any posts or content it deems is in violation of University guidelines.
