Sam Houston State Social Media Policy One of Most Read Stories of 2011 in ‘Chronicle’ List

December 21, 2011

Wired Campus, a technology-themed blog of The Chronicle of Higher Education, has published its “10 Most Popular Wired Campus Articles of 2011” list this week. Seventh on the list is an October feature on Sam Houston State University’s controversial social media policy, which sparked waves of student protest at SHSU, including a “free speech wall” event begetting its own controversies over free speech at SHSU. Fortunately, SHSU ultimately decided to ditch the proposed policy. The many thousands of reads garnered by Wired Campus’ writeup can’t have hurt the effort, and we’re glad to see that it reached so many people.
