Social Media

Social media at Simmons University is managed by the office of Online Communication and Design. Our social media accounts are often the first thing external audiences see when exploring Simmons. What we post can powerfully support our brand and promote goals like enrollment and annual giving. Therefore, it is essential that University accounts are managed thoughtfully.

Requesting a Social Media Account

Any new social media account at Simmons University must be approved by the Lead Social Media Strategist on the Online Communication and Design team.

To request an account

  1. Review the Simmons University Social Media Policy
  2. Complete the Social Media Account Application.
  3. Meet with the Lead Social Media Strategist to review your account needs.

If your account is approved

If the requested account is approved, the final content strategy will be saved by the Lead Social Media Strategist. If required, the Lead Social Media Strategist will follow up with branding for the new account(s).

The Lead Social Media Strategist will conduct an audit of this account after 3 months. At that time the account will be reassessed and could potentially be deactivated.

If your account is not approved

If the requested account is not approved, alternative options for content sharing will be recommended.

Social Media Strategy and Support

All social media accounts at Simmons University receive ongoing strategy advice and support from the Lead Social Media Strategist. Always remember to tag your content appropriately with #MySimmons.
