CCED Social Media: How and Why to Become a Follower
By: Charlie Nick, Social Media Intern
We are currently active on a wide variety of sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube. We wish to show the community the types of projects we do here at the CCED and what sorts of opportunities there are statewide. There are options to further educate yourself about your community and there are also options to take action as well. Check out the CCED and REI social media pages below to find out more about our projects and about your community. You can join the social media lists by following the social media forums below.

There are several projects the social media team are developing to present our work to the community. Our current project is “Humans of CCED,” where we post about the members of our team, creating an intimate dialogue between the department and the community. Every team member works on several different projects and Humans of the CCED gives the community a chance to learn a little more about what we do. CCED social media is also promoting the celebration of the CCED’s 50th year. Our mission with the anniversary project is to give insight on how and why the department was created, and to recognize the work we have done over the past five decades. In addition to our large projects, we do a variety of smaller projects as well. On our webpages, we aim to post daily to keep the community updated throughout the week, whether that be on upcoming events, special projects within the center, or special topics in the community or university. The social media team works to increase our following, to educate members of the community, and to provoke a positive change.
Throughout the 50 years of its existence, the CCED’s social media is something rather new. We are now able to network and communicate about our projects more efficiently and create a stronger following. Not only will followers be more aware of the social issues that are happening statewide, but they will be more educated on these specific social issues and how they can take action to help communities thrive. With knowledge comes action; with action comes development. There are endless ways to help communities grow. Informed individuals can help sustain the communities around them.
