NY Times on College President Blogs

November 24, 2006

This week, the New York Times reports, "while some colleges and their presidents have seen their reputations shredded on student blogs, and others have tried to limit what students and faculty members may say online, about a dozen or so presidents... are vaulting the digital and generational divide and starting their own blogs." PR advisors warn that presidents "blog at their own peril," and legal advisors call it "insane." Many allow students to post comments in reply, leading to criticisms of faculty and administration policies. New York Times
