Consultation

Social media managers should discuss their plans to create a new account with their colleagues across campus.

Obtain permission from the chair, dean, director or manager whose unit will be represented by the new social media account.

Discuss the plans for the new account with any communication officers in relevant areas. For example, someone in an academic department should talk to their faculty communications officer and anyone else managing social media accounts in their department. This is to ensure well-coordinated efforts between units.

Contact the social media coordinator in UC+M to discuss strategy and resources (socialmedia@uvic.ca).
