Social Media: Building Community
Matthew Anderson directs social media at Western Washington University, from which he graduated in 2006 with a degree in journalism.
He conveys Western's strengths on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Google+ and LinkedIn. He loves the job because it allows him to converse daily with Western's wonderful students, faculty, staff and alumni. Anderson also is the person behind Western Today, for which he draws heavily on his background in community journalism.
Anderson works full-time in Western’s Office of Communications and Marketing and occasionally teaches newswriting (J207) and editing (J309) in Western's journalism department.
