The Department of Public Relations enhances the University’s overall reputation by increasing its visibility through a variety of communication services to its internal and external audiences.
As the central department for internal and external communications, the public relations staff supports and promotes the institutional mission by effectively disseminating news and other information to the media, local government officials, general public and greater university community, and continually monitors traditional and social media outlets for news coverage of the University. The staff can also prepare representatives for media interviews and serve as spokespeople for the University when necessary.
