Contact Us

Need help with communications, marketing, outreach, events?  University Relations is a small team, but we want to hear about your events and achievements.  You may find that we can incorporate your individual project into communication strategies that already have a significant audience:  social media updates, email newsletters, university publications, news releases, website promotions, digital advertising, etc.  We need to be constantly in-the-know about what's new and remarkable at Mines in order to promote the university and increase its reach.

We may take on your project, provide you with some tools or suggestions to enable you to handle it, or have outsourcing suggestions.  Feel free to contact us to discuss your idea. If you are ready to move beyond the conversational stage, please use the UR Job Request to request our assistance.
