Media Relations

News media at UCCS

The Quick Version

Media Relations serves as UCCS's official communication link to local, regional, and national media.

The Office of Media Relations serves as the university's official communication link to local, regional and national media. In many cases, Media Relations staff serve as official university spokespersons. In other cases, Media Relations staff work actively with faculty to publicize their work at the university or to link media members in search of faculty expertise. Faculty members are encouraged to work in coordination with Media Relations when contacted by the media or to develop publicity plans to highlight faculty research, service and teaching.

University Advancement unit responds to hundreds of inquiries and produces more than 60 press releases annually. The unit also provides informal and formal guidance to faculty and staff about responding to media inquiries or promoting actions through the mass media. University Advancement staff members also serve as advisers to the student newspaper and to the campus radio station.
