University Relations’ communications team often acts as the official liaison between the University and local media outlets, including newspapers, magazines, TV, radio stations and online publications. If a UM employee is contacted by local media, they are encouraged to use professional discretion and notify UR of any inquiries.
University Relations also sends notices of a student’s graduation or academic honor to his/her hometown newspaper. Send an email to email@example.com with the subject line “Hometown News” and we will assist with getting the student’s achievement to his/her hometown newspaper. Timeline: 2-4 weeks. Submit Request
