As higher ed social media managers, we’ve all had that morning when we wake up to see our institutional account mentions blowing up and that sinking feeling that follows when you realize you’re going viral—but not in the way you dreamed. 

In this week's roundup, higher education honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., more institutions are expected to close this year, and recent graduates feel unprepared for the workforce. 

In this week's roundup, TikTok is being banned from some campuses, more high school students attend community college, and severe weather affects California institutions.

In this month’s roundup, a new fellowship has been started for student journalists, HBCUs see a growth in endowment, and two more HBCUs will open medical schools. 

In this week's roundup, the strike at the University of California ends, the Pell Grant sees an increase and U.S. News is working with law schools on restructuring its rankings. 

In this week's roundup, more conversations on mental health are taking place, the strike at the University of California has ended for some and a course aims to help develop social skills lost in the pandemic. 

In this month’s roundup, an HBCU gained attention for their gymnastics team, a teenager was named responsible for most of the recent bomb threats towards HBCUs, and Tennessee State’s Marching Band was nominated for a Grammy. 

In this week's roundup, student loan forgiveness is in the hands of the Supreme Court, faculty diversity does not reflect the U.S. population and the University of Idaho is focused on healing.
