Let's Make It Official

The University of Michigan-Flint’s primary official social media accounts, which represent the institution as a whole, are managed by University Relations, but we welcome departments and programs across campus to join us in the online conversation.

Approved departmental "official" UM-Flint social media accounts enjoy the following exciting benefits:

  • Listing in the UM-Flint Social directory
  • Official social media icons provided by University Relations
  • Broader potential reach

For consideration as an official account, we ask that you meet with us to talk about your strategy. After all, not every social network meets every communication goal. Approved accounts will have an identified target audience, defined content plans and goals, and plans for monitoring and evaluation in accordance with the University of Michigan's social media guidelines.

University Relations periodically scours the internet in search of university-affiliated accounts, and may reach out to your unit to be included in the official directory. You may also hear from us with ideas for strategy or collaboration. But don’t wait to hear from us! We are here as a resource as you navigate the ever-evolving world of social media.
