Media and Public Relations
University Communications develops and implements an advertising/marketing strategy that enhances and is consistent with the University brand, manages internal and external communications, provides public relations and marketing support to selected special events, promotes the University, its faculty, staff, and students through positive media relations, and serves as official University spokesperson to the media.
Media releases are submitted to appropriate local/regional/state/national media outlets to promote upcoming events, projects, achievements, programs, etc. All media releases are added to our news database for display on our website as well. Please contact Tammy Whaley at ext. 5210 with information.
IMPORTANT: Please note that this office cannot guarantee that a story will be highlighted by local media on broadcast news or in the newspaper. This office sends media releases regularly to the media, and then they decide what, if anything, will be featured.
