LinkedIn can be a powerful professional tool, but only if used wisely. These guidelines help LinkedIn users conduct their online activities in a successful, productive and legal manner.

Colorado State University encourages the use of LinkedIn to communicate with prospective and current students, staff, faculty, partners and alumni.

LinkedIn is a professional social networking site designed with three goals in mind — to enable users to connect with one another, to enhance career connections and business opportunities, and to share industry advice.

  • Establish a name that resonates with users and the University.
