NASPA Western Regional Conference Anthology

I’m thrilled to announce that I will be giving the closing keynote at the NASPA Western Regional Conference in San Diego. The title of my talk is “Taking Strategies to Practice: Student Affairs and Social Media“:

We “get” Facebook. Some of us are even on Twitter. Do you YouTube? So what’s next? How do we create community and connections using social media? Student Affairs practitioners are developing amazing ways to use social media to enhance their practice and reach their strategic goals. Let’s tweet, update, and create!

    Eric -

    Beyond Twitter and Facebook, many university admissions departments are benefiting from the use of ‘real-time’ social media. Real-time social media allows admissions counselors to personally connect with large groups of students in a medium students know and prefer. They focus on topics that matter most to students and their parents such as admissions, financial aid, testing requirements, and more. Real-time social media also supports the sharing of URLs, images, slides, videos, Twitter and Facebook accounts, etc.

    Counselors save time and money while familiarizing prospective students with their school – ultimately motivating more students to apply and enroll.

    Eric – we have so much to catch-up on!  Yes, I FB!  And I even have a Twitter account.  But I haven’t much of a clue about how to use either to engage my campus community.  They deserve, and seem to want, more of me.  And I don’t know how… Help!!!
