NYU’s central social media channels, which reach a combined audience of over 1.5 million students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other community members, are managed through NYU’s Office of Public Affairs. Please direct any content suggestions or questions about those main accounts—our digital hubs for celebrating real-life milestones in NYU research, academics, and University life—to nyustories@nyu.edu. Looking to connect with a particular NYU school or institute on social media? Consult our directory.

Social Media Ambassadors

NYU’s individual schools, departments, and offices are represented online through social media accounts maintained by hundreds of administrators across the University. All employees who manage active social media pages on behalf of an NYU entity are invited to join NYU’s Social Media Ambassadors Group, which provides guidelines and tips, industry news and updates, and networking and professional development opportunities for communicators working in this field.

An NYU.edu email account is required for membership in the group, which is led by Eileen Reynolds, Director of Social Media. Request to join or contact social.media@nyu.edu with questions.
