Media Relations

From breaking news and trailblazing research to notable achievements and campus events, we cover a breadth of newsworthy university happenings. Discover experts on engineering and energy, science and space, or browse through past press releases to see our latest academic endeavors and pioneering initiatives improving the quality of life here and around the globe.

We draft press releases and media advisories, respond to reporters' inquiries, coordinate interviews and press conferences, connect media with faculty, provide public relations counsel and communication support, and distribute information to news outlets nationwide.

With the explosion of nontraditional media, we also communicate through nontraditional means, including the web, Legacy News, video, and other electronic and social media.

Everyone has a story. We want to tell yours.
