Media Relations and News Submission

Media Relations

Faculty and staff members' expertise is often of interest and value to the news media as they seek to gain a better understand of VCOM and topics related to its practices. Through the media, VCOM gains access to new, large and important audiences.

All media inquiries must be directed to the appropriate Communications campus contact within the division. No interviews, comments or opinions should be given by any individual without the division’s consult.
