Alumni Futures: Editorial Policy
This blog is a personal, individual effort to generate discussion about new ideas and possible directions for institutional advancement in education. This includes the central fields of alumni relations, development (fundraising), and public relations (including marketing and communications). It also ranges outward to touch on related topics in institutional affairs and governance (e.g., admissions, career services, information technology, academic issues, finance, leadership and more).
New items appear intermittently, and I encourage readers to leave comments via the blog's commenting feature. Occasionally I might invite a guest blogger to write about a topic of mutual interest. Alumni Futures will also publish white papers on relevant topics and may periodically host private (invitation-only) or public meetings, seminars, conferences or workshops. In general, I will not publish your guest blog post unless I have invited you to write it.
The only third-party ads on the site are job postings for positions at educational organizations. Revenue from these postings helps underwrite the cost of hosting the Alumni Futures web site. I do not publish content which I consider to be primarily commercial in nature. I reserve the right to comment (negatively or positively) on commercial products and services, according to my own views and experience. None of the content on Alumni Futures represents the views of my, or any, employer or other person or organization.
I encourage readers to contribute (via comments or email) their ideas and visions for where higher education administration is heading, as well ideas for topics or questions for Alumni Futures to address.
