Past and Upcoming Projects


SWE Publicity Committee is exploring various forms of media like short-form video, social media, and written blog content to engage our members and expand our audience outside of our organization. Last semester, Ivy and Ismene shared UT Registration Tips via TikTok and Instagram Stories, the entire publicity committee came together to practice gratitude within the organization by sharing what everyone is thankful for in our Thanksgiving YouTube Video, Naina edited our Thanksgiving video to produce a sharable form of content for our TikTok, and Anisa shared a Daily Vlog of an Engineering Student. Marcie and Paulina have been collected recipes to share on our upcoming SWE recipes blog post. Highlighting the opportunities SWE has, Annisya documented our trip to Indianapolis for the Annual International Society of Women Engineers Conference.

Stay tuned for what Publicity Committee has planned this new year!
