Social Media Account Request Form

Thank you for your interest in launching an official University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) social media account. All accounts that represent UMB, whether in name, as a program, group, entity, etc., must be officially requested and approved by the Office of Communications and Public Affairs (CPA).

Starting in 2023, CPA will selectively consider requests for new accounts. Please consider contributing your content to an existing account within your department/division/school social accounts.

Accounts that have been created before receiving approval will receive advisories for complying with University branding and may be pulled down if they violate University social media policy.

In the case of an account denial, CPA will work with the unit/organization to implement a social media strategy using existing UMB social media channels.

If you need assistance before submitting your request, please email
