Social Media Feed

 

Social media feeds are great enhancements for departmental websites, because they can provide fresh and actively changing content. Check out the Social sidebar on the University homepage.

To request your own feed, submit the form on this page with information regarding the departmental feeds. (We will contact you via the email address you enter in the form.)

If you would like more information on how to best take advantage of social media, visit the Social Media section of the University Relations webpage. You will find details about how UTC is using social media, social media policies, how to start social media sites and social media best practices.

Before you complete the request form, please read the following:
