New Social Media Policy

You’ve heard it before – we’re a small university with a big heart. And what better way to express our heart than through social media.

UMW’s more than 130 social media accounts (and we’re still counting) give us a voice to help spread the word about our master teachers, study abroad experiences, athletic programs and everything in-between. That’s a lot of voices, telling a lot of stories, reaching a lot of people – and we’re proud of that.

To keep that social savvy thriving, UMW is introducing a new social media policy that applies to all UMW-affiliated social media accounts. More than just words on paper, the policy:

  •  Ensures proper portrayal, promotion and protection of UMW
  •  Brings the university into compliance with state social media laws
  •  Puts the university on par with the social strategies of peer institutions

How can you get on board? If you manage a UMW-affiliated social media account or supervise someone who does, review the policy and submit any accounts through the approval form.

Want to learn more? Join us for an information session to walk through the policy, ask questions and get a checklist of ways you can stay on top of social media initiatives:
