Podcast highlights include:
  • Regulatory hurdles for social media participation in the education sector
  • The importance of integrating and harnessing the disparate internal communities at educational institutions
  • The importance of students as an ever-changing and tech-savvy resource to help drive community building
  • Extending connections beyond the current faculty and students to incoming freshmen and alumni- is that happening enough?
