Social Media

We manage the university’s main social media persona, bolstering the brand through consistent and strategic engagement with audiences using various social media platforms. We generate excitement and awareness around university-related events or news with daily and live updates. We advise other university entities in the management of their own department-specific social accounts and share posts created by those accounts to cultivate cohesive brand messaging that is compelling, accurate, and informative. Please let us know how we can assist you.
