Join Us For Some Holiday Cheer on Facebook

Rumor has it everyone who follows the UHP on Facebook will automatically get on Santa’s “Nice” list. Again, just a rumor, BUT…

Yep. Even Santa’s on Facebook…

The UHP’s Facebook page is full of the Spirit of the Season, no matter what season you may personally choose to spirit. It’s where you’ll find photos of all our seasonal parties, too! So stay in touch with your Honors Program friends over the long winter break by following us on Facebook. It will be like giving a present to yourself.

Google+ and Facebook. Both Acceptable Ways To Get Your UHP Dosage

Two ways we do this is through our facebook page and our Google+ profile. Join us in both places to make sure you’re doubly informed.

Police and Social Media [Event]

Social Media and Municipal Police Departments: Current Use and Future Prospects

As public officials and scholars alike concern themselves with declines in civic engagement and a  weakening of the public sphere, new technologies– in particular social media– have arisen. Some see these new technologies as providing opportunities for and forums within which enhanced government-citizen interaction and even collaboration.  I investigate this prospect by looking at social media use among municipal police departments.  I ask: Which social media platforms do police departments use? Do police departments use them for information and announcements or for interaction? Where interaction is taking place, is it transactional or collaborative.
I, accompanied by 2nd year Honors student and Research Assistant Andrew Beauregard, will discuss the results of a pilot study of 10 police departments and results to date of a larger study of 25 police departments.  Andrew will discuss his experience collecting and working with data.

We Like You… Why Not “Like” Us?

14 Nov

It only took developers five weeks to create Farmville… think of all the time that the 80 million people who play Farmville spend playing it. Makes you feel productive, huh?

We may not play Mafia Wars with you or help you build a fence in Farmville, but we do have facebook timeline!  If you “Like” us on Facebook we’ll be able to see all of the cool things you’re doing – and you’ll be able to see cool UHP-related news, opportunities, free food events, and photos! We also have been known to “like” what you’re up to as well. But not in a weird creepy stalker way…
