Social Media

Social media is an invaluable communication medium. As you use tools like Facebook and Instagram it is important to develop a voice that represents CSU Dominguez Hills in an authentic and engaging manner.

Audiences will vary from platform to platform and according to affiliation with the university. Individuals and units using social media on behalf of the university should take the time to determine who their users are and familiarize themselves with the guidelines presented here.

Naming Conventions

Use “CSUDH” or “CSU Dominguez Hills” when naming social media accounts. This helps to distinguish us from other colleges and universities and provides consistencey. If your department or unit name is too long to use in its full form, abbreviate as necessary but be sure to use the unit’s full name and “CSU Dominguez Hills” in the description.

Use of the University Logo in Social Media

Many of the avatars and icons associated with social media accounts are an appropriate size to contain the CSUDH logo. Instead, use an iconic and identifiable image as your graphical representation. Consider using a portrait or a photo of your location.
