Social Media Sub-Committee
Statement of Purpose
To create and manage relevant social media formats for the association. The Sub-Committee on Social Media supports AUCCCO’s “broad understanding of outreach, prevention and education services based on the assumption that outreach must extend the expertise of counseling centers to the larger campus community.” Through development of social media formats, the committee can engage in sharing of useful and innovative mediums of mental health information and programming with the outreach community. In turn the individual members and member institutions can utilize what is offered either directly or adaptively. The intention of the committee is also to model the practice of posting dynamic and interactive content in multiple social media platforms, within appropriate guidelines of a counseling center’s ethical considerations. The use of social media can also contribute to the outcome of responding to and honoring “perspectives that address the intersection of multiple social identities, promote social justice, and celebrate diversity in all its forms.” AUCCCO social media may also provide a safe space for members to stay connected in mediums that are most current and ever changing.
