University News and Information

The Office of News and Information can help publicize events. Having media cover events often requires special expertise. Major events that require additional security and reporters may have particular equipment or needs. The Office of News and Information can help you plan for this part of an event and ensure these issues are addressed in the early stages of any events planning process.
