The cat is now out of the bag and we can add our announcement here. After a few hurried weeks we are launching a pair of presidential websites. Dr. Loftin’s institutional site has been completely overhauled and moved to president.tamu.edu. The site is designed to be much lighter than the old version, and will give Dr. Loftin the ability to interact more with the public. It will feature such topics as Ask the President, as well as present his weekly reports online and even expand his presence into a “From the President” section that will allow him to expand on relevant topics throughout the year.
In keeping with his personality, Dr. Loftin expressed an interest in finding some way to communicate with the Aggie family on a more personal basis. We have therefore created a Facebook page for him, and the reception has already been far beyond our expectations. We hope to use both of these vehicles to continue getting Dr. Loftin’s messages out to campus and beyond. We have found very few presidents of major universities using Facebook, so we hope that it’s ongoing growth will further cement our social media leadership in higher education. We encourage you all to visit the site and become a fan.
