Deletion Policy

SFAI social media accounts are intended to inform users of SFAI-related news and events and to foster community. Accordingly, SFAI reserves the right to edit or delete disparaging posts, personal opinions, or inappropriate content as it sees fit. 

Content Guidelines

  1. Be transparent; identify yourself; be professional. If you choose to include SFAI in your profile on a social site, be yourself and feel free to say what is on your mind, but do so respectfully. Your opinions should be apparent as your own and not representative of the views and opinions of SFAI. 
  2. Official groups or pages must be supervisor-approved. If you feel there's a need for a particular official group or page for SFAI, please contact communications@sfai.edu. 
  3. Not everything needs a response. SFAI has a long, storied history that has fostered a wide range of artist movements and, as such, is open to criticism about any number of things, from works of art to policies. If you can correct an error or factually incorrect statement or direct someone to a webpage that does so, that's helpful. When a post or comment is sensitive and needs a response, please forward it to communications@sfai.edu. 
  4. Be aware of liability. You are legally liable for what you post on your site and others. 

Media Consent + Publicity Release Policy

San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) reserves the right to publish without notification any artwork produced by students or photography/videography of students on campus—including studios, classrooms, or events—while attending SFAI's degree and continuing studies programs. Reproductions and images will be for non-commercial purposes only. They include print publications, institutional websites, e-communications, social media (i.e., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn), multimedia presentations, and documents about SFAI for admission recruitment, fundraising, or institutional informational/promotional purposes. SFAI makes every effort to properly credit featured work.
