Chancellor Tom ‘Twitter’ Harden grabs UW System megaphone Monday
UW-Green Bay Chancellor Tom Harden will become the first university administrator to take over the @UWPowersMe Twitter account Monday morning (March 25), guest-tweeting as the voice of the statewide campaign for one week. Harden, who has served as UW-Green Bay’s chancellor since 2009, will tweet about on-campus events, items in the news and his observations on the multifaceted benefits of a UW-Green Bay education. He hopes to offer the Twitter account’s followers a taste of campus life, and a look at how the University makes a difference in Northeastern Wisconsin and statewide.
“This is a terrific chance to showcase the UW-Green Bay experience, and to show a broader audience how a UW System education benefits not just our students and alumni, but indeed the entire state of Wisconsin,” Harden says. “I’ve often said I must have the greatest job in the world, to be part of this incredible campus community. Now I’m pleased I get to share that in a brand-new way.”
UW System’s David Giroux praised UW-Green Bay’s efforts to embrace social media. “UW-Green Bay already does a fantastic job of sustaining a strong presence on social media, so it’s only natural that @UWpowersMe should feature Chancellor Harden’s distinct voice.” Read more.
