Promoting Student Organization

The Center for Leadership and Involvement Marketing Team is interested in promoting YOUR student organization on Instagram (@uwcfli) for #FeaturedOrgFriday. Every Friday, a new student org will be shared to help increase student involvement on campus. All that we ask of you is to send in pictures of your organization (at least 2-4 photos) via the CfLI Buzz. When sending in your pictures, please include your organization’s name, a short description, contact information for any questions, as well as when and where general meetings take place. After that, the marketing team will take care of the rest! If you have any questions, please submit your comments through the Buzz, or email the marketing team at  CfLIMarketingTeam@gmail.com
