Empowering Zips to be Strong Ambassadors

UCM is working to equip University of Akron employees with the information needed to be strong ambassadors of our institution. To achieve this goal, we have several initiatives underway, including several tip sheets to help employees navigate interviews with the media, tell their stories well, present to prospective students and manage social media.
