Social Media Directory

Many U of I System offices have social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and others. System office units that maintain social media accounts should follow general social media guidelines and best practices of the universities linked below, and the U of I System Social Media Comment Policy. System office units should also follow system branding guidelines for their accounts.

When creating content for social media, it is important to keep digital accessibility at top-of-mind. A terrific free resource for accessible social media can be very helpful. 

To request updates to this directory, or for questions about U of I System social media accounts, please contact
