Social Media Setup Requirements, Policy and Best Practices

Overview

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University appreciates the effectiveness, ease of use and continued growth of social media, as well as its students’ preference to receive information across those popular communications platforms. However, there are also potential risks in using these platforms. To protect the university’s brand, as well as confidential and proprietary information protected by various laws, rules and regulations, the university requires that official North Carolina A&T State University social media accounts for divisions, offices, colleges and departments follow the requirements for the establishment and maintenance of those accounts as outlined below.

Requirements

Formal approval must first be obtained from the corresponding department chair/associate vice chancellor/dean to request a university social media account and then contact the university social media manager in the Office of University Relations, in order to proceed. 

We are currently in the process of updating university social media policy and requirements. Please contact Tonya Dixon, University Social Media Manager for account requests and all account setup.
