Social Media Alumni Ambassadors 

Social Media Alumni Ambassadors for the Cal Poly College of Liberal Arts (CLA) help promote the college by liking posts and sharing content from and to CLA accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. On occasion, alumni ambassadors may be asked to promote specific messages or initiatives, including Cal Poly events, fundraising campaigns or newsworthy CLA stories.


How do I sign up?

Use the form at the bottom of this page, or email CLA Online Communication Specialist Krista Smith to become a CLA Alumni Ambassador today!

How often do I need to engage with CLA on social media?

We request that ambassadors engage with CLA at least once per month (but more often is highly encouraged!). Engagement can take several forms:

  • Like, comment on or share posts from various CLA social media accounts
  • Initiate and join discussions on the CLA Alumni LinkedIn group 
  • Post CLA-related photos on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #CalPolyCLA
  • Encourage your network of fellow alumni to follow CLA social media accounts

How do I find out what’s happening in CLA?

By becoming an alumni ambassador, you will get the inside scoop on the biggest news and events from the College of Liberal Arts through occasional emails.

Do I need to have an account on each social media platform?

No! While we’d love for ambassadors to interact with all CLA social media accounts, we understand some alumni may not have accounts on every platform.

Do I need to change my privacy settings?

No! The idea is that you will share your #CalPolyCLA pride with your own peers/followers.

What type of content should I post to the LinkedIn group?

LinkedIn group discussion posts may cover professional development topics from interview advice to industry news, and everything in between. Discussion posts are not meant to serve as promotional opportunities for your company, but you of course may post relevant job openings as they come available.
