How we can help you?

Media REquests

All media requests, including interviews, photographing and videotaping, should be made through the Communications Office. Partnering with the Communications staff to fulfill media requests will ensure the safety and privacy of our students and faculty.

And, if you have an idea for a great story we can pitch to media or produce on our own channels, please let us know.
