Social Media Policy Report Assignment

Many of you wrote about the use of social media in your written assignments.
Since we just reviewed planning (14), writing (15), and completing (15) reports
and proposals, you will have a chance today to put those skills to work in a
written document for the Director of Student Activities and Involvement.
You should find out who that person is, and write your persuasive message and
policy document as if you were sending it to the person in charge of all student
organizations and their use of social media. Use every resource available to you to
draft a social media policy report/proposal to be submitted to the Director for
approval. You should include a policy statement and a rationale in the report to
persuade the director that this is an important issue and the policy should be
adopted for students and RSO’s.
You may decide to include a cover memo persuading the Director to adopt the
policy and then attach the policy to the memo. Or, you can imbed your persuasive
rationale in the policy/guidelines document itself, as done with the faculty/staff
To further clarify, the statement of purpose for the report is: To educate and
persuade the director to adopt the policy, which is detailed in the report, on CMU
student use of social media/social networking. Use any and all resources to find
information about this report: phone, laptops, computer labs, interviews, Twitter,
Facebook, national memberships, etc.
Sample issues from the three chapters to consider include: how to build credibility
with the director, what are the audience expectations, how to gather information
needed, what kind of organization to use for the report, use of the direct or
indirect approach, what kind of logical arguments fit, references or supplemental
parts of the report, etc.
The best written report will receive a team prize. Feel free to use me as a
resource, or ask questions along the way
