Public Relations

Public Relations support is available for campus entities with news to share and performances/ events to promote which may be of interest to the public.

Please note due to limited resources, the Office of Communications and Creative Services reserve the right to determine which items will be promoted widely.

Don’t Wait

With sufficient advanced notice, we can help you engage traditional and digital media outlets and provide support with press releases, op-eds,  media pitches, social media, and advertising buys for newsworthy items. 

Please note that for major media outlets and monthly publications there is often a three-month lead time. For event listings, many publications request information be sent at least three weeks in advance. Op-eds should be written and submitted within a couple of days of the event or issue which inspired the column.

As news and events may be suitable for inclusion in larger stories, please contact the media relations specialist as early as possible with information and details about your upcoming projects and events. 

Make It Social

Tag the main Purchase College accounts on your social media posts. 

Mention Purchase

The college subscribes to a digital clipping service, so if you mention Purchase College, we will see it.
