UConn Alumni Social Media Ambassadors are members of UConn Nation who want to represent their alma mater with pride on social media. They share UConn-related content they think alumni want to see, promote events and initiatives that resonate with them, and help us get creative by brainstorming new ways to connect UConn alumni across the nation.
I’m interested, but I have some questions…
What is the time commitment?
We ask that ambassadors commit to serve for a one-year term, with the option to renew. Over the year, ambassadors should pick a minimum of 12 events, giving/crowdfunding initiatives, stories, etc. to promote on their social networks – and not all at once (think at least one a month). You can tweet, ‘gram, post, or snap, depending on which channels you have a strong network in.
Am I qualified?
If you have a passion for sharing your positive experiences at UConn, have great written communications skills and the ability to motivate others online and in person, social media smarts and a solid following among other UConn alumni, parents and friends, and love to attend UConn and UConn Alumni events, you’re qualified!
I’m on Facebook and Instagram, but not Twitter. Do I need to create an account?
No! We want you to communicate on the channels you are already on. If you’re an avid Tweeter but square photos aren’t your thing, don’t worry about it! No account creation is required for this (unless you want to try something new, of course!)
Why should I be an ambassador?
You’ll be an influential voice in the social media outreach strategy that we use to connect with UConn Nation. You’ll have opportunities to share your expertise, your cool job, the city you call home, etc. on a nationwide platform! You’ll receive insider information and be the first to know about upcoming events, webinars, networking and volunteer opportunities, and alumni benefits. You’ll expand your knowledge of social media marketing and engagement, and connect with fellow ambassadors to hone your skills. Plus, it’s a resume builder! And, arguably most importantly…you’ll receive free UConn swag that is not available in any store or on any website.
I’m interested! What’s next?
