Office of Media Relations

The Office of Media Relations prepares and distributes all press releases to local, regional, and national media except releases regarding sports-related activities. The press releases range from major stories about achievements by faculty, administrators and students to public service announcements. Some stories may be distributed only to the local media depending on the subject and relevance.

We also provide tips for writing press releases.

Here are the tips:
  • Keep headline short, punchy and to the point
  • Keep pertinent info (time/date/location) in the first paragraph
  • Try to include a quote if possible
  • Keep release to one page, two the most
  • Photos should be full-resolution, but no more than 1MB.
  • Send to our Office for review before releasing to the public
