News Submission Form

THIS FORM IS FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY.   WE DO NOT ACCEPT OUTSIDE REQUESTS.

When submitting potential news items, please provide as much information as possible in the fields below. To optimize the distribution of your news submission, please allow at least one week between submission and distribution — especially if scheduling photography is involved.

Staff in the Office of Communications, Public Relations and Marketing will determine the best means of distributing your news submission, which may include online news postings; distributed news releases; alumni publications; e-newsletter content for employees, students and/or alumni; and social media postings.

Please also consider the following:

News involving students must be cleared by the student(s) concerned before release, as prescribed by FERPA. Therefore, student-focused news submissions will be treated as though the student has provided full release of the information submitted.

To avoid potential violation of contractual or intellectual property protections, research stories involving sponsors, inventions or other research interests should be cleared by the Office of the Vice President for Research and the appropriate college or school dean before submission. Research-related submissions will be treated as though that clearance has been provided.
