Social Media

The Social Media Team in the Office of Strategic Communications (OCOMM) maintains the strategic direction, daily content management, monitoring and moderation of Georgetown social platforms. The team also promotes university-related initiatives and provides guidance to schools, programs and centers, including consultation on social media campaigns and new account creation. We facilitate collaboration and promote a unified message across Georgetown social media accounts.

Social Media Guidelines

Georgetown entities should create social media content in ways that are professional, technically secure and transparent. Units and departments are responsible for managing the social platforms themselves (platforms cannot be run by a student), and should remain informed of social media guideline updates as required by the OCOMM office. These guidelines apply to all university-related profiles managed by colleges, departments or centers.

New Social Media Accounts

Any department or entity looking to create a university-affiliated social media profile must complete and submit a Social Media Strategy worksheet to social@georgetown.edu.
