CEO Poll on Social Media Technology Use in Community Colleges
The League for Innovation in the Community College and the University of Arizona, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, have partnered on a three-year research project for the purpose of increasing understanding of issues relevant to the ability of social media technology to connect students to information and institutional resources, and to increase student retention and other related outcomes.
An early step in the research is a quick poll of community college CEOs to help researchers get a sense of the current scope of social media technology use in these institutions. This poll is also part of a larger strategy for identifying colleges for possible participation in the project.
As a thank you for participation, upon completion of the poll, each respondent’s college will be entered into a drawing for one of the following prizes:
- A one-year subscription to iStream, the League's online resource repository (www.league.org/istream), with access for all college employees ($2,825 to $5,850 value), or
- Registration for two college employees for a League conference (www.league.org), with a choice of the 2011 Learning College Summit, 2011 STEMtech Conference, 2012 Innovations Conference, or 2012 Learning College Summit ($850 to $1,600 value).
The poll was distributed to presidents of U.S. community colleges on April 29, and the deadline for responding is May 11. For more information, contact Cynthia Wilson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
