A well-suppoted blog hosting service has been established for faculty, staff, and students of the University of Minnesota, USA.

The service is called UThink , and supports teaching, learning, scholarly communication, and individual expression by the university community.

Do many other universities and institutions support the blogging efforts of their staff and students? How are such community blogging services managed? What are the best systems, and best practices?
