Social Media Resources

Student using Smartphone

Social media provides community members (including students, potential students, parents, alumni, and Riverside residents) with a closer, more personal look at UCR and its research, departments, organizations, clubs, and events. Use social media as an opportunity to build community, listen, and share stories about what life at UCR is like. Social media is our chance to interact with the public using trusted channels that are more personal and engaging than static print and digital publications. Building and nurturing relationships through a steady stream of interaction opportunities provides us with an invaluable link to our stakeholders.

UCR's Social Media Policy (available to view by clicking on the button below) includes all facilities for digital publishing and commentary including, without limitation: blogs, wikis, social networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram, Tumblr, Vimeo, and YouTube. This policy is in addition to and complements any existing or future policies regarding the use of technology, computers, email and the internet. All uses of social media must follow the same ethical standards that UCR employees must otherwise follow.
