Social Justice Series
University Marketing and Communications at Michigan Tech is looking for student groups to run temporary takeovers of its Snapchat account. UMC is seeking your help in identifying responsible and outgoing students in your organization who would be willing to run a Snapchat takeover. The benefit to you? Raising student awareness about Michigan Tech in general and about your organization in particular.
The university Snapchat coordinator, Ben Jaszczak, works with campus groups like yours to organize awareness-raising Snapchat takeovers targeted to current and future Huskies. With over 2,000 followers, our Snapchat account is a great way to reach undergraduate and prospective students.
To run a Snapchat takeover, all you need to do is identify a student(s) who is willing to run the takeover and choose a time slot of 1-3 days where they can highlight your program or event. With that information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your takeover. You can direct any questions about this event to Ben Jaszczak, Multimedia Specialist and Snapchat Coordinator, at email@example.com. We appreciate your help!
At-Risk for Students Course
College can be stressful at times, and Michigan Tech wants to empower our students with the resources they need to help one another. We’re excited to present the Kognito simulation At-Risk for Students course, which will help in recognizing signs of distress, determining if a friend needs help, how to talk to someone in need of help, or where you or your friend can turn to for resources. It can be difficult to deal with these kinds of issues, but an effective conversation can help more than you think-it can help change someones life. We hope you enjoy this simulation, as we all work together to help one another and build a stronger community.
Kognito is an online training simulation to help students learn how to talk to others in need and help in a crisis situation using role playing.
If you encounter technical issues, please contact Kognito‘s support team at: firstname.lastname@example.org
