Media Relations and Coverage
We are a team of communications and media specialists who write about and diligently seek media coverage for the outstanding achievements of our campus community – acting as a liaison between the University and the media. Contact the Media Relations unit for all types of media support. These are the services we provide:
Advisories and Releases
We draft advisories (invitations to media members to attend an event) and press releases for news and events from AUC’s schools, departments, centers and offices. For media advisory requests, you can fill this Media Advisory Form.
If you would like us to invite the media to your upcoming event or need our assistance in drafting or reviewing your event’s press release, please make sure to send us your request at least 15 days before the event.
Press Conferences, Media Invitations and Interviews
The Media Relations unit arranges press conferences and media roundtable discussions, covering breaking news and current topics. We also invite members of the media to our University events and arrange TV interviews on campus and in studios. We are available to assist media members and their crews acquire the necessary security permits to access AUC's campuses.
