We’re All in This Together: Connecting the Silos of Social Media

#PST37 Poster Sessions Track

First floor foyer, Frontier Airlines Center


Silos: we deal with them every day in higher education. It’s easy to create a good strategy for your own microcosm, but is it always the best strategy? In this session, find out why Belmont University created a social media administration team with members from across the institution, and learn how the team is working to make social media a success at the university.
