Getting Started


Answer “yes” or “no” to the following:

  • Do you have someone (or a group of people) who will be responsible for monitoring and updating the site(s), preferably daily?
  • Are there many people who are interested in following you in social media?
  • Do you have the technical ability to produce photos or videos needed for some of these sites?
  • Did your dean or supervisor approve your initiating social media?

Did you answer “yes” to all of the above? Then you’re probably ready to get started!

No formal approval is required to create your own social media account(s). After you have established your account(s), please visit the Social Media Directory and click on the appropriate link to submit your new channel(s) for inclusion.

If you are in a unit with access to the university's social media management enterprise system, please contact the Social Media Team for information on arranging training and system integration.
