WHAT WE DO

Media Relations

​Our PR team serves as the primary point of contact between the Tulane community and external media. We respond to media queries and work to connect journalists with university experts for their stories, often on tight deadlines.

When a faculty or staff member is contacted by a journalist directly, please let us know. We can be a liaison to coordinate interviews and offer expert guidance in responding to media inquiries. A staff member from public relations must be on hand to escort media when interviews are scheduled to take place on campus.

Press Releases and Media Pitches

We write and distribute press releases about university news, research, honors and advancements based on news value and high potential for regional or national coverage. We also strategically reach out to media to pitch Tulane news to targeted audiences. If you have a potential story that you’d like us to promote, please Tell Us Your News

Promote Faculty Experts

Our faculty experts provide important context and perspective to journalists on everything from breaking news to the latest scientific discoveries. We pitch our experts to national reporters on a daily basis.  If there is a trending news topic in your area of expertise and you would like to be included in our expert news outreach, please let us know at pr@tulane.edu.
