Media Relations

The Communications Unit works proactively with the news media in order to maintain positive, mutually beneficial relationships on behalf of the University. The unit is responsible for garnering local, regional and national media coverage for the University and its divisions, departments and units through the distribution of press releases and media pitches; responding to media and public information requests; and serving as University spokespersons.

The Communications Unit also provides media training for campus administrators, faculty and staff in order to demonstrate effective ways of showcasing the University’s mission during various types of interaction with the news media. 

The Communications Unit assesses the newsworthiness of all potential story ideas submitted by University personnel. To submit a potential news story, visit MyUWF and search “News Story Submission.”
