Social Media Policy

November 19, 2018

Social media sites offer powerful means of communicating for faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH). We strongly encourage JHSPH students to use these platforms to communicate with their classmates, colleagues, and peers; to share news with the larger world; and to join in on conversations about news and happenings in their areas of interest. However, while social media sites create new opportunities to connect with others, students should be mindful of how their communications on personal social media accounts can and will reflect upon the School they attend, or organizations they’ve joined.

The Communications and Marketing team in the Office of External Affairs (OEA) manages the official social media accounts for JHSPH. The team, through the digital media manager and social media specialist, oversees and implements the School’s social media policy, best practices, and daily content creation and distribution. The team also offers consultation and guidance for faculty, staff, students, departments/offices and affiliated groups wanting to update and/or potentially launch social media accounts. Their contact information can be found online.
