Media Relations

From breaking news and trailblazing research to notable achievements and campus events, we cover a breadth of newsworthy university happenings.

We draft press releases, 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.

We publish the News, and university Research Blog. We also post and share university newsletters. We publish The Hardrock Magazine twice each year.

We help manage the university's main social media sites Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat and TikTok. We help archive university photos on this Flickr site.  We helps produce videos and cover live events on the university YouTube site
