College Union and Activities Discussion coming to Twitter

We’ve decided to initiate a Twitter conversation on Tuesdays at 3 p.m. Eastern to talk college union and activities topics (CUAD—college union and activities discussion).

This week's topic will be student training and retreat planning, which will take place July 19 at 3 p.m. Eastern; we’ll be discussing goals for trainings, timing, format, and core competencies included in trainings.

Here’s a quick overview of how the #cuad works:

  • The #cuad happens on Twitter. Follow @cuad_mod to get all the updates.
  • The chat happens weekly on Tuesday with a moderated chat from 3–4 p.m. Eastern. Join in an open discussion anytime.
  • To Join, add #cuad somewhere in your status update.
  • To Follow in real time, search Twitter for #cuad.

Our hope is to engage the college union and student activities professional community that already exists on Twitter in meaningful discussion about topics pertinent to our work and profession. We plan on trying out other technologies in the future as to engage folks that may not be interested in Twitter.

To see how people are using the #cuad hashtag, you can also follow the transcript here. This will be automatically updated as future discussion take place.

Please join us for this weekly substantive discussion and free professional development opportunity to learn from other professionals in ACUI!
