Media Relations

Media Relations gets your story in the public’s view.

We pitch your news stories to the media and respond to their queries. A response may take the form of a press release, an announcement, online communication, and/or other professional connections.

We also manage crisis situations through the media and the University’s Emergency Alert system. What counts as a crisis?

  • Public safety emergencies such as natural gas leaks, chemical spills, and building and power failures
  • Incidents that could affect the credibility and reputation of the institution such as criminal activity
  • Personnel issues that could become public problems
  • Problems related to the fiscal, academic, administrative and athletic elements of the University
