Hello! As the interest in social networking continues to spiral at
break-neck speeds, it seemed to make sense to develop social networking
guidelines for the University of Minnesota. For the past few months,

colleges/departments/units use social networking tools as well deliver
curriculum while ensuring students intellectual property is protected.

Social Networking Guidelines, now available at:

Shaping social networking standards is no small feat but individuals from
the groups below tackled the charge with professionalism, grace, and style.
