Lisa Catto

Lisa Catto, Western Oregon University

Lisa Catto has managed Western Oregon University’s social media and media relations since 2005.

She provides campus training on social media best practices, leads the university’s social media strategy, and serves on various committees, including the Emergency Planning Team. She has a B.S. in Public Relations from the University of Oregon, a B.S. in Anthropology from Western Oregon University, and is completing a Master’s in Archaeology from Portland State University.

Aaron Knight has been with the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) since 2008 and is currently a Senior Programmer/Analyst for Information Systems for the college. Aaron is responsible for internal web portals, course registration, grading and institutional reporting — basically, if it’s not a server and you wouldn’t notice him until it’s suddenly not working and is required for the college to function, he’s probably responsible for it.
