The Journal of Technology in Student Affairs
Summer 2006 Edition
As the national debate regarding thefacebook intensifies (see Michael J. Bugeja's recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education (www.chronicle.com
Section: Chronicle Careers, Volume 52, Issue 21, Page C1),
I would like to invite our readers to add to this discussion about what is happening on your campuses.
Stories related to administrative policies and practices, as well as educational sessions for students, are particularly welcome.
I might add that Student Affairs On-Line
was ahead of the curve on this issue as we published our first story a year ago.
