I am surprised to hear that Wordpress would be implemented in Universities.  In the UK and Australia and I suspect other jurisdictions the record keeping requirements on Universities are onerous -- primarily as a result of direct and indirect legislative requirements (for instance, Records FOI, Privacy acts etc).  
I can how Wordpress and associated tools would be of use in relation to facilitating conversations across Universites.  But as far as I can gather there is not a record keeping module for Wordpress -- to allow easy porting into common electronic document management software.  
Essentially every time a user hit publish or comment they would be either creating a new record or a new version of an existing record.  Without a link to University electronic document management systems institutional websites would seem crazy brave.
