Blogs for University Professionals



At the end of 2012, we looked at college and university blogs as a key source of new, meaningful information.  In order to identify the most useful resources, we ranked the blogs we came across.  The sites we found cover a wide range of ideas and concepts, but our methodology stayed the same.  To create this list, we audited blogs at two different levels.

  • Level 1: We aggregated a list of over 200 higher education blogs that were already recommended by other respected sources.  We then analyzed each blog one-by-one, color coding the ones we would be most likely to recommend.
  • Level 2: Our editors visited the top recommended blogs, assessing them for post frequency, comment volume and engagement with the higher ed reader community.  They also looked a variety of other factors, including relevancy, helpfulness, insight, design, reputation and more.
