The focus is on communication in the Public Relations Office. A goal of the office is to communicate effectively and regularly with Montevallo constituents to promote and raise awareness of the University of Montevallo, Alabamas Public Liberal Arts University®. The office has central responsibility for coordinating communications with the media and the production of a variety of publications, from the UM Undergraduate Bulletin to programs for major campus events.
Providing accurate and timely information throughout the year to its many constituents is a primary objective of the Public Relations Office. This goal takes on particular importance during times of emergency. To provide a framework for responding in the most-effective manner possible, the Public Relations Office has developed an Emergency Response Plan.
To keep the campus community well informed, the Public Relations Office produces the Wednesday Memo, a biweekly publication for faculty and staff.
