I attended the last of the American Council of Education’s Institute for New Presidents last Saturday. We covered a number of worthwhile topics. I found the one on social media valuable. President Ángel Cabrera of George Mason University shared how he uses Twitter to connect with faculty, staff, students and alumni.
While I can’t hope to devote the energy President Cabrera has invested in tweeting over 8,000 times, he inspired me. I decided to start my Twitter account. I have been live for a few days now. You can follow me @DonLaackman.
