Cardinal Influencers

Want to submit content to be featured on UIW’s main social media channels? Interested in learning about marketing and communications, and building a professional social media portfolio? Join the Cardinal Influencers!

Who are the Cardinal Influencers?

The Cardinal Influencers are the official student social media team for the University of the Incarnate Word! The team is a group of student volunteers who assist in providing content for the University’s main social media channels. Members of the team also attend UIW campus events to provide social media coverage.

Why should I apply?

Students on the team earn service hours towards their degree requirements for submitting content and covering events. Joining the team is also a great way to get more involved in the campus community. Students interested in pursuing careers in social media, communications or marketing will also learn more about social media marketing, begin to develop a content portfolio, and learn about social media analytics and strategy.

What is the time commitment expectation?

Team members are asked to attend two virtual meetings per month to discuss assignments and content ideas. Students will also be asked to attend a minimum of two events per semester and submit content at least once per month. The more events covered and content submitted, the more service hours earned!

What are the application requirements?

All students who will be enrolled at UIW for the Fall 2023 semester are encouraged to apply! All majors are welcome.
