Rebuilding social media to connect global communities
Albizu University is and international educational institution whose goal is educating students to positively impact their communities. With its emphasis on inclusivity, Albizu University takes pride in upholding a connected community of alumni in Puerto Rico and South Florida.
The alumni team at Albizu University began working with Digital Mules to grow their social media presence for both campuses. The alumni team had significant goals they were looking to achieve including a more unified tone of voice and language, the creation of content for the Alumni Association, and the establishment of a distinct identity that was more organic, inclusive, and communal.
