Office of Communications and Marketing

Social Media

Our office shares news, information, and highlights of campus life through UT’s Facebook page and Twitter feed. Followers and fans of UT on these services include students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the university, both in Knoxville and around the world.

You can find videos about UT, our programs, and our people on our YouTube channel and see our photos, as well as those submitted by members of the campus community, on Flickr. You can submit your photos by clicking on the “submit photos” link on the Tennessee Today homepage.

Social Media Best Practices Guide

UT supports the use of social media by departments and units in the course of their work to connect with students, fellow faculty and staff, alumni, fans, colleagues, and more. However, social media should only serve to supplement and not replace the official channels of communicating with your audiences. The Social Media Best Practices Guide is designed to provide guidance, advice, and tips on how to do so effectively, safely, and within university guidelines.

We welcome your enthusiasm for our university, its academic programs, its cultural events, its athletic programs, and its regional and global impact.

We do, however, provide the following guidelines:

Contribute to a big idea. Give to UT.
