Social media can be an effective tool for communicating with audiences ranging from prospective and current UAB students to members of the community and faculty peers.

  • Before creating a new social media account affiliated with a UAB College of Arts and Sciences department, unit, or organization, please fill out the form below. The Dean’s Office encourages units to take ownership and management of their channels and we’re happy to consult with units individually to provide best practices and guidance to help support your unit’s goals and audience.
    • After completing the form and discussing your goals with the College's Communications team, you will still need to receive approval from UAB's Office of Marketing and Communications to create a new social media account. You can learn more about UAB's social media protocols and guidelines here.
  • Know that managing social media account(s) takes time and dedicated resources, including at least one person dedicated to managing the account. Be prepared to create and schedule content at least weekly. Accounts need to be monitored daily, including responding to direct messages and engaging with followers in the comments. If a social media account remains inactive for a period of time, we can work with your unit to close the account and help support your communication needs on the College of Arts and Sciences account(s). A closed account is better than an inactive one.
