News that Highlights UNH's Mission
The Communications and Public Affairs Office at the University of New Haven is always looking for developments on campus that may interest the media. In addition to pitching "stories" to local, regional, and national media, we often seek faculty experts to comment on breaking news. Story ideas can be based on students, faculty members, research, or programs that illustrate the intellectual, professional and social benefits of the University's integration of real-world training and liberal arts learning.
Timing is everything in gaining publicity for campus news-media outlets have strict deadlines. We will work with you to explore possible story angles, strategies, and deadlines. Please note that submitting information to media outlets does not guarantee it will appear in print or be broadcast. Media outlets make the final determination.
Given the wealth of topics on campus that can potentially generate media interest, story ideas for publicity should be sent at least four to six weeks in advance.
Publicity for Your Event
In addition to promoting University of New Haven news, the Communications and Public Affairs Office is happy to help publicize University events that are open to the public via events calendars throughout the region. Please remember that timing is a key element in successfully garnering publicity for your event. Media, specifically print publications, have strict deadlines for receiving and publishing information. Submitting your event for publicity four to six weeks prior to the date will greatly increase the likelihood that media will take note.
