For the Media
The Director of Media Relations serves as a liaison between the media and the College community. The Office of Marketing and Communications team has established relationships with reporters and editors in newsrooms both local and national and we work with them to generate positive publicity about College accomplishments.
In addition to consistently promoting the College’s successes and impressive slate of award- winning faculty, we handle times of crisis — whether there’s an emergency that disrupts campus operations or a more complicated issue. We also serve as the primary contact for fielding queries from the media and make arrangements for interviews with faculty experts.
