Campus-level social media accounts
Campus-level Social Media Accounts include public-facing social media accounts that represent the campus as a whole and disseminate central communication messages on behalf of the campus. International social media accounts, for example Sina Weibo and WeChat, are also considered campus-level social media accounts. Campus-level social media accounts do not include college, department, or unit-level social media accounts.
