Social Media Guidelines

Manhattan College encourages college departments to use social media as a means to communicate with current and prospective students. We ask three things of departments that want to utilize social media:

  1. Register your account(s): Please fill out the social media registration application so that we can have a formal record and add your department to the Manhattan College social media directory.
  2. Use a branded profile photo: We will provide you with a branded profile photo to use on your social media accounts. This distinguishes your account as being an official account that is managed by personnel at the College. See an example from Admissions or an example from ITS. Please DO NOT just grab and re-use images from the website. We will work with you to get you high-quality and appropriate images for use on your social media accounts. 
  3. Read the policy and handbook: We've created guidelines that outline best practices, what to do and not do, and how best to utilize various social media platforms. Please read the social media policy and handbook before diving into social media. 

Please contact annie.chambliss@manhattan.edu or julie.achilles@mahattan.edu with any questions you have about utilizing social media for your department.
