College Relations Services
The Office of College Relations functions as a primary source and clearinghouse for public information about the college. All requests for general information about the college and inquiries from prospective students or other individuals and organizations should be directed to the Office of College Relations.
COLLEGE PUBLICITY AND NEWS
The Office of College Relations is responsible for disseminating college information to the news media for the purpose of publicizing and promoting the business of the college. All college news releases are prepared and distributed through the Office of College Relations, which is responsible for accuracy, acceptable style, and uniformity of message.
The College Relations staff actively solicits suggestions from departmental chairpersons, faculty, administrators and staff members for designing outreach information about college programs or services. When new courses or services are planned, when activities of interest to the community are scheduled, when courses or services are altered, when interesting students or projects are noted, when faculty or staff deserve promotion, or when any happening of possible news or promotional value occurs, a call to the Office of College Relations will help inform the public about the college.
For most news releases, a three-week advance notice is necessary to assure publication. To request publicity through news articles to local newspapers, contact the Coordinator of News and Information, ext. 2212.
