Submitting News to the News Bureau

Not all information originating on campus is news, but each request for coverage will be evaluated for its potential interest to various news organizations or publication on the News Bureau website, and Postmarks, published each semester for the parents of undergraduates.

A word about Timing

It is never too early to notify the News Bureau, but it can be too late.

The News Bureau needs to receive information as early as possible. In emergencies, we must act immediately. With other news, time is required to gather information, notify news media, and let them develop and find space or airtime for the story.

An index of News Bureau staff and beat assignments is available here, or contact the News Bureau at
