Social Media

Social media and social networks are powerful tools for faculty and staff to enhance teaching, research, collaboration, and communication.

Social Media Avatars

UBC’s avatar system provides a unifying look, while ensuring that units can still clearly identify themselves on social media channels.

Official avatars can be ordered from UBC Brand and Marketing, and are available for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube and Google+.


To request social media avatars for your Department/Unit complete the online form on the UBC Brand website.
