Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This manuscript examines social media messages posted while students served on an Alternative Break. Content analysis was implemented to examine four years of public domain messaging (n=3,012). Data were collected from social media sites by searching for #hashtags provided to students, a common practice of university volunteer centers. Findings support the need for student training and guidelines from departments facilitating the experience to enhance message congruence.
