Renowned for hosting some of the nation’s most popular social media-focused conferences, the Social Media Strategies Summit Higher Education will seek to educate and provide those working within the field of higher education with strategies on how to implement a successful social media strategy to position their institution for success. Other topics of the conference will include how best to assess and audit ongoing social media initiatives; and how to revitalize their strategy framework in conjunction with experienced brand practitioners who will assist in identifying new and creative ideas.
Research has found that prospective university students, most of whom come from a generation immersed in social media and digital technologies, often use these technologies extensively as a source of information, including as a way to choose their future university. A study in the United Kingdom found that 83% of students were now opting for social media channels to help them make their university choices (https://nnw.fm/3K8iz).
The Higher Education Summit, inaugurated by summit emcee, Elizabeth Hornsby, Graduate Coordinator at the Southeastern Louisiana University, will feature a series of live, 45-minute-long presentations held throughout the conference.
