News Release Requests
To request a news release, contact the Office of Communications and Marketing with the information outlined below. Provide the information in electronic form so the office does not have to re-key the information. This saves time and reduces the chance of errors in the re-typing.
After the information has been put in the appropriate news style, you will be sent a copy of the release for review before the information is distributed to the media. Please remember:
- The more lead time you can provide, the better.
- 10 days to two weeks of lead time is best.
- Your job is one of many we will be working on.
- Upcoming event news releases should be distributed about a week in advance.
While our office will extend you this review courtesy, media will not. Though we can control what leaves our office, we cannot guarantee how or when the materials will appear in print or broadcast media.
