An Online Intercollegiate Community The internet has become the refuge, home, and system for the world. Due to the pandemic, student life has been forced online and it is essential to maximize the effectiveness of this powerful tool. Accordingly, I am proposing an online community to provide a platform for students from any university, location, and walk of life to collaborate and chat about anything from, data science (coronavirus predictions!) to online student activism (climate change!) to educational advocacy (reducing tuition!) to events (TEDxTwitch!). Let’s make a place where students can socially distance. Plan Strategy: Marketing: Use college mailing lists, established servers, Facebook posts, public online events, and fundraising to advertising the server and its resource Scope: Anyone should be able to join the server, with a focus on college students. Reach out to experts to develop structure and design Branding: Logo, Initial Instagram posts, Recruiting message Channels: events, starboard, lounge, politics, self, memes, advice, suggestions, QOTD, confessions, wholesome, bot-commands... Rules: no agendas, wholesome community, strict moderation Roles: Marketing, Events, Admin Get traction Website Mission statement/Vision Example organizations to ask for Sponsorship: Interest-based: AIESEC, SAE, NAIA College Access & Support: Hercampus and others Community service: Key Club, Interact Romantic: Ok Zoomer, Datamatch, Bumble Educational: KhanAcademy, Brilliant, Canvas, YouTube creators Founders of Yik Yak, Kik, Marco Polo Social media apps: Snapchat, TikTok, etc Fundraising and Finances (optional) for events Discord Advertising Event fees YouTube videos Minecraft server My cloud credits (>$100k) Donations Events: Talks TEDxTwitch Panels - Experts and leaders Town Hall discussions and conversations Presentations First-year Fridays Open Webinar Calendar Exchange programs Q&A Panels Outreach to foreign colleges Collaborate with online space platforms, like Reddit, VR chat, Roblox, Minecraft, Second Life, etc. Resources Training on all the online academic advising resources available Harvard Engage Office of Arts, Harvardwood, No Label, and other resources to create a robust pre-professional program in the arts Match students with alumni in their professional fields of interest to supplement on-campus advising.

Why/how can I get this done: I know it's a lot, and since I'm doing a lot, these aren't promises of things that will happen, but rather suggestions of things that should happen and I could get done if supported, since I've done some version of them before with my nonprofit. I thought I should get it on the record.
