Published on

A copywriter, a career counselor, and a development officer walk into a webinar. The Facilitator asks, “What’ll you have, a nice Editorial Calendar, perhaps? Our Hashtag Martinis are pretty popular.” … While coordinating your campus-wide social media plan is no laughing matter, it is best to come at it with an open mind, buckets of enthusiasm, and a sense of humor. Learn why the checklists approach – Video, check. Facebook, check. Twitter, check – is not enough: To make Social Media work, you must have a brand message to share, you must galvanize the whole campus community, and you must find synergy between each separate key initiative. Learn how to implement integrated marketing plans that advance brand. Paul will provide an insider’s perspective and show how to bring together colleagues from across campus. Josanne will provide a methodology for developing and implementing a plan that works for your institution and for initiatives of any scale – regardless of staffing resources. Session attendees should be prepared to submit questions to the session Twitter feed prior to the conference, for real-time discussion during the event.

  25. 25. “Gain perspective”<br />It has universal applicability both within and beyond Canada because it speaks, first and foremost, to the inherent promise of the liberal education St. Thomas University delivers.<br />For the U.S. and other international markets, this signature also speaks directly to the advantage of study outside one’s home country.<br />In Canada, it speaks directly to the advantage of studying in a place “away.”<br />In New Brunswick, it works to describe a compelling alternative to UNB and others. <br />It is not an empty claim of institutional superiority; rather, it is a reminder of what’s important and necessary to a well-educated and effective life; it also asserts the real benefit of a STU education.<br />This Signature will serve to support outreach to all constituencies of the University, including the alumni, by reminding them of the real value of what they received at STU. Its promotional power is derived from a recognizable truth about the institution; it is not hype. <br />21<br />
