News Conferences and News Releases
SUNY Erie’s media relations is authorized to organize and coordinate all college news conferences and plays a critical role in crisis communications and issues management. We prepare SUNY Erie faculty and administrators for news media interviews and serve as college spokespeople when appropriate. News releases, media advisories and video interviews produced are posted to SUNY Erie’s website, Today@SUNY Erie, social media outlets and are disseminated digitally to media outlets. This material is used as content on websites throughout SUNY Erie and within college publications and marketing materials.
Faculty who wish to be accessible as expert sources for reporters covering breaking news and trend stories are encouraged to work with SUNY Erie's Public Information Officer.
If you have a news story or event to promote via a press release, please complete the below Submit News form. (All submissions must meet approval by the Public Information Officer.)
