Texas Tech University’s Office of the Provost is re-emphasizing its focus on social media, introducing a revamped Facebook page last week.
The move comes amid efforts by Interim Provost and Senior Vice President Lawrence Schovanec and his staff to better engage the Texas Tech community in the university’s academic mission. The office aims to improve communication by sharing updates on its initiatives, in addition to offering information about programs, publications, and research and academics topics that would be valuable for scholars.
“Academic programming is the core of the university and central to our mission in the Office of the Provost,” Schovanec said. “We look forward to sharing our initiatives and progress, as well as advancing our achievements, through the reach of social media. We invite all members of the university community, including faculty, staff, students and alumni, to explore our social media channels.”
Along with Facebook, the office is turning to Twitter to strengthen communication. Any updates that are shared on Facebook will also be tweeted via the office’s Twitter feed.
