Social Media Comment Policy

VMI social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, Instagram, and LinkedIn) are where students, parents, alumni, and others can learn about and enjoy a view of life and happenings at the Institute.

We encourage fans and followers to post, comment, and interact with others and expect that remarks will be on-topic and respectful of the rights and opinions of others. Posted comments do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the Institute. VMI reserves the right to terminate access to pages by repeat offenders.

If you have any concerns about the content posted on one of our social media outlets, please email us at We welcome all of your feedback and appreciate your help in creating a safe and respectful online community.
