Media Coverage Tips
The Office of University Communications and Marketing will assist you with publicizing your upcoming events, both internal and external. We will also handle posting your information on the front page of the Park University web site as the event nears.
- Contact us immediately after setting a date for your event — whether it is a lecture, conference, special program for students, etc. Submit a Park News form or send an e-mail to Brad Biles with basic information about the event (who, what, when, where, how). Upon receipt of the information, we will follow up an e-mail requesting more information and/or photos/art if needed. The event will also be added to the University’s Online calendar, as well as the Imprint Express upcoming events.
- When scheduling an event or guest speaker, please ask the person (or his/her publicity agent) to send you a biography and photograph (please make sure that any photos sent are high-resolution [ 300 DPI ] JPEGs/TIFFs. Send all information and photos to Brad Biles and it will be filed for use.
- All story ideas are welcome -- hard news, features, human interest. Please do not feel awkward about submitting information about yourself -- we won’t know if you don’t tell us. Submit information about colleagues who have won awards or earned an outstanding achievement, students who are being considered for an award or who have received a scholarship, etc. Do not limit your submissions to guest speakers and conferences.
- The key to getting good coverage both on campus and off is by contacting the Office of Communication immediately after an event date has been confirmed. Most events will get little to no publicity if a news release is not in the hands of the media prior to their submission deadlines.We appreciate your assistance in highlighting the interesting offerings available at all Park University campus centers.
