Contacting the Media

The Office Media Relations is responsible for issuing press releases and contacting media outlets on behalf of the University. Press releases often are a collaboration between Media Relations and individual campus communications specialists, but they are released to the media through this office as a means of ensuring consistency in distribution, style, and content, as well as providing a web-based archive of our news.
