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, Research Blog, Monthly @ Mines newsletter, and the Mines Family Matters newsletter on the first Wednesday of each month. We also publish The Hardrock Magazine each spring and summer.

We manage the university's main social media sites Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. We also produce videos and cover live events on the university YouTube site
