The 12 Must Follow Community College CEO’s on Twitter 2014

A recent UMass study indicates social media use at colleges and universities is on the rise.   They indicate:

Over half of college presidents studied are posting on Facebook (58%) and tweeting (55%), while 35% host their own blog.

Although I am not convinced those numbers are accurate in community college land, there certainly some community college presidents doing some amazing things on social media.

I first wrote about the “Three Tweeting Community College Presidents” after attending their session at the 93rd American Association of Community Colleges Conference. I am happy to report Dr. Karen Stout @drkastout of Montgomery County Community College  Dr. Anne Kress @MCCPresident  President of Monroe Community College, Dr. Margaret McMenamin @DrMcM President of Union County College (NJ)  are still tweeting.  I still contend every single college and university leader in the country could learn a thing or two about using social media at their institutions by following these three on Twitter.  They Tweet with a purpose.

With the help of Sarah Lawler, Marketing Manager for AACC (American Association of Community Colleges) I have added to my  list of community college presidents to follow on Twitter.  Here is my list of the top 12 most social Community College CEO’s  on twitter as well as a more comprehensive list of community college CEO’s who are using twitter to communicate.    On average, the top 12 have an average of  2945 Tweets and 749 followers.  They share great content and often interact with students. On the bottom list Luke Robins from Peninsula College gets bonus points for being a Fly Fisherman and Duane Dunn from Seward County County Community College gets points for being in the part of the world where I grew up.  I attended several family reunions in Liberal KS.   No logic for the those points…but hey its my blog.  The top 12 truly understand the benefits and power of social collaboration and how it enables institutions to better serve and collaborate with campus constituents.   Well done.

The list below includes the 12 above and 20+ more of the most social CEO’s in the community college world as observed by Sarah Lawler.  I added a couple but Sarah did most of the work pulling together this list.  Thanks Sarah.
