Haley's panel highlighted social media success stories from IANR, the University of Illinois, Penn State University and the University of Wisconsin. Spotlighting students, faculty and staff has consistently proven to be successful content on IANR social media channels. As a panelist, Haley encouraged those in the audience to highlight the individuals that are make higher education so great.
"It was an honor to serve on a panel with three talented communications professionals from institutions across the Big 10," Haley said. "Social media is a moving target, and one that requires a lot of trial and error. I hope that NAADA participants felt empowered to go home and try out our ideas across their social media networks."
The conference also featured a guided tour of the agricultural operations on the Biltmore Estate. Along with America's largest home, 8000-acre property in the Blue Ridge Mountains has a variety of field-to-table gardens and a vineyard.
