Social Media Work Group
The Social Media Work Group is a collaborative group of professional staff from across TXST who actively manage and create content for our university’s numerous social media channels.
This work group is ideal for university partners in our colleges, departments, and offices who are in need of social media support, who are experienced and interested in sharing their insights, or who simply want to join a community of like-minded individuals to learn and grow professionally.
Ultimately, this group will function as a resource for those who own and manage university social media accounts.
