Cameron University complying with Governor Stitt's TikTok Ban

Lawton, OK - Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt issued an executive order banning the use of the TikTok App on all state-owned electronic devices with internet connectivity last week. Since then, agencies have scrambled to figure out how to handle it.

Cameron University’s Senior Director of Public Affairs Keith Mitchell says his school has been trying to figure out what to do since the order came out.

“That’s correct. The order came out last Thursday and there’s always a question as to how state agencies that term, apply to higher education.”

Cameron University deleted their primary TikTok account Tuesday morning and different units on campus are in the process of deleting the app.

Cameron isn’t the only school taking action. Northeastern State University in Tahlequah has also told employees to delete the account on devices associated with state work.
