Note: For an overview of all the news and communication features within Solomon, including the new features below and how they compare, see this guide.

Solomon Sharing & Shout-Outs

What it is: Solomon Sharing and Shout-Outs is a forum designed to engage and strengthen the Longwood faculty and staff community. All faculty and staff are encouraged to share news about personal and professional accomplishments and milestones (promotions, awards, publications, weddings, births/adoptions, retirements, etc.); details about campus and town activities of interest; words of recognition for co-workers; and even fun anecdotes and general musings.

Who can post: All faculty and staff can post shares and shout-outs. View the how-to guide to get started! While this is an open forum, we ask that you keep your comments and posts civil and appropriate. We reserve the right to remove any content including, but not limited to, defamatory content; profanity; libel; ethnic or racial slurs; sexist, homophobic or similar content; attacks against an individual, group or the university as a whole; and any other content that conflicts with the purpose of this feature. Please note that all posts are publicly accessible.

How to access: You can always view the latest shares and shout-outs at the bottom of the Solomon homepage. For the full wall with more shares and shout-outs, visit The latest shares and shout-outs will also be included in the e-newsletter (see below).
