For Faculty & Staff
Provide help when a reporter calls
The Office of University Communications is staffed by professional journalists with extensive experience working with the media. Our office works with all media, including on-campus publications, local, national and international press. We issue press releases, organize press conferences and handle media relations for Stanford. We can assist you in publicizing news that has a university connection.

Publicize an event or make a campus announcement
University Communications can also help you to publicize events and make announcements. Stanford Report is an email sent every weekday to approximately 35,000 faculty, staff and other subscribers. Stanford organizations may purchase display advertisements in Stanford Report. For more information on announcements, contact Charity Ferreira, charityf(at)stanford.edu.
University Communications also maintains the Stanford Event Calendar, which allows you to publicize your events on the university website.
Manage the media at your event
Having media cover your event often requires special expertise. High profile visitors may have security concerns and reporters may have particular equipment or seating needs. University Communications regularly partners with the Office of Special Events and Protocol (OSEP) to ensure that these issues are addressed in the early planning stages. For more information contact the News Service at (650)723-2558.
