Sharing information is a basic tenet of higher education. Through social media, it is easier than ever to reach out to others and to share information. There have never been fewer barriers to sharing, but with this openness comes a need to know exactly what to share and with whom, as well as a clear understanding of what not to do.

WVU supports its faculty, staff and students in the use of social media to connect with each other and to accelerate teaching and learning.

If you department establishes a Facebook or Twitter account, please make sure that two administrators are assigned to the group. Also, see WVU's Social site for social media tips and guidelines.
