    COVID-19 Social Media Best Practices

    Thursday, August 5

    2:00 pm ET

    Social media platforms are an effective avenue for colleges and universities to reach their students, faculty, and staff alike. As vaccination rates among 18-24 year olds remain a challenge to achieving community immunity, colleges and universities must ensure that they are providing good and credible information to students where they are - especially online where misinformation is abundant. We will examine best practices and effective strategies in engaging campus communities using Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and TikTok.
