The University’s official social media presence is managed by the Office of Communications and Marketing. This includes the University presence on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and FourSquare. The Office of Communications and Marketing also follows social media trends and looks for new opportunities to grow the University’s social media presence. If you would like a story or article published about your department or program on these channels please contact Beth Marmarelli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in setting up a social media presence for your specific department, program or organization you are asked to first complete the strategy outline and then get approval from the Office of Communications and Marketing and the senior administrator of your department, organization or School/College.
If you develop a social media outpost for your organization or department, let us know. We are eager to build a community of UM-Dearborn groups using social media and to promote these channels.
The Office of Communications and Marketing leads a working group of social media practitioners across the University. The goal of the group is to provide these practitioners with a forum for discussing social media tools and best practices, learning about new technologies, coordinating efforts and sharing information. The group meets regularly and also provides a resource for discussion and announcements.
