2.6. News & Press



The Office of Communications at the School of Business reviews all news requests for publication on the school website and distribution via social media.

News & Press Coverage for Events

Many events take place on campus daily. Depending on the nature and size of your event, news coverage may be appropriate. Our office can help you determine the best course of action to reach your intended audience.



Requesting News Coverage

To make your request for a news article, have the following items ready:
  • Intended audience
  • Suggested article title
  • A draft, summary, or bullet list of key points to include in the article
  • Photos to accompany the article, with suggested captions
  • Approved quote(s) from subject matter experts or key people mentioned in the article
Fill out the News Request Form and submit it to communications@business.uconn.edu.


After you submit a news request

Your news item will be reviewed and edited by Office of Communications staff. Once published, it will appear on relevant School of Business website pages, may be distributed via select social media platforms, and will be reviewed for inclusion in the monthly School of Business e-Newsletter.


Including your article in newsletters

Before widely advertising your event, consider your target audience. Is the event by-invitation only, or open to the public? Is it a career-building event for undergraduates, or a marketing society meeting? Is it for School of Business alumni, students, faculty/staff, or for a university-wide audience? Asking these questions will help determine the best places to feature your event.
