Lourdes University welcomes the opportunity to share the latest news about the institution.
Media Relations serves as a liaison between Lourdes University and the local media. The University requests all media outlets to respect the privacy of Lourdes students and employees and submit their requests for interviews, access and information through Helene Sheets, Director of University Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Likewise, students who are approached directly by the media must refer them to the Office of University Relations to facilitate their requests. By contacting University Relations first, the Office will be able to properly facilitate any requests, and to direct media to the appropriate personnel and location. A University Relations member must be present when a Lourdes University student meets with or is interviewed by the media. University Relations can assist the student with preparation before meeting with the media.
Media Relations is responsible for:
- Creating news releases and publicizing news via media outlets and social media
- Contributing articles to internal and external publications
- Copywriting, editing and proofreading
