For the news media – You’ll find campus news, features, statements on issues, photography and video clips on this website. You should contact the News Services staff for help in connecting with subject matter experts, interviews with university leaders or campus visits involving photography and video. You’ll save significant time with our help navigating the campus and its many resources.

For campus colleagues – You’ll always find us interested in newsworthy developments in your department or your noteworthy academic achievements.
