Reporting to the Director of Brand and Content Strategies, the Social Media Specialist leads the College’s institutional social media efforts: strategizing, creating, posting, and monitoring content, analyzing effectiveness, and actively engaging on behalf of the College. She tells the story of Wheaton College through video, photography, and messages on the College’s institutional YouTube, Facebook, X, and Instagram accounts.
