Social Media Guidelines
Our audience’s primary source of information is more than just the Internet, it is social media. NC Wesleyan represents itself on several social media platforms – namely Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. Likewise, it is a primary goal for the college to be completely mobile-ready in order for our students and following audience to remain connected and up-to-date.
It is preferred that all departments, divisions, and student groups promote themselves under the official NC Wesleyan page for each of these platforms. If you are an authorized contributor to any of the college’s pages, or if you must maintain a separate social media presence, you are required to adhere to the following guidelines.
• Any content (imagery, video, text) that cannot be approved by the NC Wesleyan Marketing Department must support the integrity of the school and reflect our five core values.
• Make certain photos and videos meet the brand requirements in terms of quality and composition.
• Never tag and/or post an image or video of a student or faculty member without their expressed permission, unless the context of the post clearly implies such permission (i.e. Interim President Evan Duff speaks at Orientation).
The NCWC Marketing Department maintains a comprehensive directory of all college-affiliated social media accounts representing departments, clubs, programs or other college entities. In order to be recognized as an official college account and use the Wesleyan name, the account must be registered with the Marketing Department. To request a college-affiliated account, or register an existing account, fill out the form below. Questions can be directed to Stephen Mann, Social Media Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Social media account requests must come from an NCWC faculty or staff member.
Students: Please contact your faculty or staff advisor about submitting a request.
