How to Get Started

Not sure of which person to contact? Contact your communications manager for marketing, publications, websites, research, and promotions to external university audiences. Contact your media relations manager about news stories or pitches with the media. Before talking with the media, remember it is policy to send media calls directly to your media relations manager.

When you contact a member of our staff, we will ask a few questions about your strategic goals. We may ask you to provide us with additional information or set up a meeting to talk more. We’ll then recommend the best communications strategies to achieve those goals and integrate with other university communications. For example, this might include a poster, brochure, website, news release, or a combination of materials.

No matter the medium, we're your creative partner, from conceptualizing ideas to crafting action-inspiring messages to creating eye-catching branded designs to coaching you as you talk with the media. We’ll take the lead in helping you accomplish your marketing and communications goals.
