Promote Your Office/Program Through DUE Social Media Channels

DUE Communications

Social media has become an important way we engage and inform students. We work with DSL to manage a number of broad, student-focused social media channels, including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr. If you're new to social media, take a look at our accounts to get a sense of how we use these different channels:

Twitter Instagram Facebook Tumblr

We would love your help in providing great content for these channelsHere is what we are trying to do:

  • Raise awareness and build connections. Example: Tweet about an upcoming event or newsy item you'd like to share (in 140 characters or less!).
  • Use photos to provide a view into student experiences at MIT beyond typical scenes on campus. For example: Post a photo of an event your department sponsors, a photo you take on campus, or photos taken by a student related to projects, teams, events, etc.
  • Share student stories, particularly around academic endeavors. We can work with a student to either write the story or have the student write it.
  • Identify students who are interested in running our Instagram account for a few days or a week.

As you plan for the upcoming academic year, we encourage you to consider opportunities to utilize social media to promote your office or program. Please feel free to share with us your ideas for potential student stories, news items, photo opportunities, announcements, or videos.

If you have content you'd like DUE Communications to post, or just have a question about using social media to help you reach students, please contact Elizabeth Durant, Communications Coordinator, at edurant@mit.edu.
