College Administrators

Here are some tips to help you protect your privacy online and empower the campus community to own their online presence and enhance the campus’s digital community.

Are you and your students good online citizens?Encourage students to own their online presence and keep their reputation in mind. Most employers look at social media sites before making a decision to hire a new employee.  

Are you keeping pace with new ways to stay safe online?Check trusted websites for the latest information, and share with students, friends, family, and colleagues and encourage them to be web wise.
