TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Members of the Kansas Board of Regents are expected to vote this week on a revised social media policy that would allow university leaders to fire faculty or staff who violate the policy.

The Board of Regents Governance Committee approved the policy Tuesday. Regents Chairman Fred Logan said the committee made some changes to the proposed policy in response to public comment.

Logan said the revised policy includes "strong support of academic freedom," and will go to the full regents for a vote May 14.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the regents developed the social media policy after an anti-NRA tweet in September 2013 by David Guth, a University of Kansas journalism professor.
