Communications & Media

Learn how to disseminate your news and events to audiences inside and outside the College.

External Media Coverage

Your news or event may warrant coverage by external media outlets. For external coverage, please let us know as soon as possible—a long lead time is best. 

Tips

  • You can send one email to all team members with events or story ideas.
  • We also encourage you to check-in again—preferably 2 to 3 weeks ahead of time—by email or phone, regarding important upcoming events. This reminder is greatly appreciated and helps us provide the promotion you want.
  • If details change for any event, please let us know ASAP. We rely on you to tell us about time changes, rescheduled events, added special guest appearances, etc.

Internal News Coverage on Emerson Today

Emerson Today is the College's internal news site that promotes the latest news and activities by Emerson community members including students, faculty and alumni. Like external news coverage - a heads up ahead of time on stories we can cover internally would be appreciated. In addition, the College promotes media coverage by Emerson's subject matter experts via Emerson Today and through our twitter account @emersoncollnews.
