Social Media and Communication Centers: An Introduction

Janine Morris, Whitney Lehmann, Kevin Dvorak


While many communication centers actively use social media to engage with different publics, there is a need for scholarship addressing how centers can best use social media to enhance student professional development, cross-campus connections, branding, and center visibility.
