Public Relations

The Public Relations Office writes and distributes news and information to the news media and key constituencies of the University. This is done through hometown and general news releases, public service announcements, electronic news briefs, and the Newsline web site. The office sends information to print and electronic media and coordinates news conferences. Staff will consult with University organizations about publicizing their programs and events.
