The communications team manages the School of Undergraduate Studies, Sanger Learning Center, Freshman Reading Round-Up, and Wayfinder Facebook accounts. Submit a design request if you would like our team to create shareable graphics, cover photos, or profile pictures for your program's Facebook account. facebook accounts tend to have lower engagement than other social media channels. Posts with a photo gallery from an event or congratulatory messages for students/staff/faculty winning an award are best for Facebook. If you have questions about starting or maintaining a Facebook account, email the communications team.
UGS blogs use the "UT Responsive" Wordpress theme. During the fall and spring semesters, blogs should be updated weekly with new posts. If your office would like to create a new blog, email the communications team. We will request the blog URL and create a photo banner consistent with other UGS blogs.
