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. The site can be a powerful tool when it comes to establishing professional relationships. The following guidelines are intended to help LinkedIn users conduct their online activities in a successful, productive, and legal manner.

The guidelines explain how to:

  • Establish a name that resonates with users and the University.
  • Choose owners and administrators that reflect University affiliation.
  • Establish discussion policies.
  • Create a profile/avatar image.
  • Manage and promote groups.
  • Engage members.
