Media Relations

Need help promoting your event? Placing an op-ed? Spreading the word about an award received—or a new program, project or faculty appointment? Wesleyan's media relations team shares timely information about the exciting work of faculty, students, alumni and staff with the news media and answers inquiries about the University and its programs. We also identify faculty members who can provide expert perspectives on local, regional, national and international news stories; pitch and place op-eds; publicize Wesleyan-related events to both internal and external audiences; and provide media training.

  • Op-Ed Placement

    As part of our mission to promote Wesleyan on a national level, we routinely place op-eds and pitch faculty experts to major media outlets across the country, including this piece by Wesleyan President Michael Roth in the Washington Post.

  • National Media Coverage

    Our media outreach campaign announcing The Wesleyan University Hamilton Prize for Creativity generated extensive major media coverage in outlets from USA Today to The Chronicle of Higher Education.
