Digital Citizenship

A good digital citizen uses digital resources responsibly, protects personal information, exercises appropriate discretion, and respects others. Whether you are sending email, participating in online discussions, or posting to social media, practicing good digital citizenship makes life online safer and more pleasant for yourself and others. Always Expect Respect. 

Respect & Protect Yourself

  • Use appropriate security measures, such as spam filters, anti-virus software, and secure browser settings.
  • Don't over share online. Protect your privacy.
  • Assume anything you share can and will be seen, and possibly shared, by others.

See Be Aware and Protect Yourself for tips and information about IT security and privacy.

Respect Others

  • Follow applicable responsible-use policies.
  • Expect Respect.
  • Help create and maintain a respectful and inclusive environment for everyone. Give it. Get it. Expect Respect.
  • Treat others the way you want to be treated. Even better, treat them the way they want to be treated.
  • Respect others' personal information and privacy. Make sure you have permission to download or reshare other people's information or works before you do so.
