MediaMine Aggregates University Social Media Sites

The MediaMine, UNC Charlotte's social media hub, is an ongoing, evolving project focused upon gathering and showcasing social media sites at the University. Understanding that social media can benefit all facets of academia, students, faculty, staff and the community are encouraged to use these resources to engage and be involved.

With more than 750 entries on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Blogger, Flickr, and Instagram, the MediaMine showcases the diversity of campus activities, our student body, and faculty research. Visitors to the MediaMine can filter based on categories such as arts and culture, athletics, global reach, research, and scholarship and academic life to find content that is relevant to their interests. Of particular note are the social media best practices, which provide common-sense guidelines for participating in social media discussions.

SBTDC Relocates to PORTAL

The relocation of the Charlotte regional office of the Small Business and Technology Development Center to the UNC Charlotte PORTAL Building concentrates University-affiliated entrepreneurial support services in a state-of-the-art facility. Formerly located in the Ben Craig Center at University Research Park, the SBTDC officially opened in PORTAL, Jan. 2.

"PORTAL opened in early 2014 to serve as the region’s focal point for commercial collaboration among entrepreneurs, corporations, academic researchers, and our students," said Robert Wilhelm, vice chancellor for research and economic development at UNC Charlotte. "The SBTDC resources will add to the vibrant scene that already includes the Ventureprise incubator and special events such as the 2014 Charlotte Venture Challenge."

The UNC Charlotte SBTDC is led by George McAllister, and currently includes five business counselors with broad business expertise. In 2014, they provided assistance to more than 800 small- and mid-sized companies in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties.
