Communications and Marketing manages the social media accounts that represent the Institute as a whole. Many other accounts are separately maintained by departments and programs. 

Keep up with us on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin


Account Creation

Contact VMI Communications and Marketing prior to establishing new accounts in an effort to prevent duplication of effort and unnecessary proliferation of pages and accounts.

You must receive permission from the supervisor as appointed by your department head before establishing any new accounts. Once the account is created, notify Capt. Kelcey Troxell, Marketing Manager at troxellka@vmi.edu and provide her with contact information for at least one administrator for the account.  We encourage departments to have at least two account administrators in the event one of the administrators cannot be reached.  

You may also request official branding from Capt. Troxell for use on your account.


Policies and Guidelines

Social Media Comment Policy

VMI social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, Instagram, and LinkedIn) are where students, parents, alumni and others can learn about and enjoy a view of life and happenings at the Institute.

We encourage fans and followers to post, comment and interact with others, and expect that remarks will be on-topic and respectful of the rights and opinions of others. Posted comments do not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of the Institute. VMI reserves the right to terminate access to pages by repeat offenders.

If you have any concerns about the content posted on one of our social media outlets, please email us at marketing@vmi.edu. We welcome all of your feedback and appreciate your help in creating a safe and respectful online community.
