University Media Relations Policy

University Communications on each campus serves as that campus’ official liaison to members of the media. It provides information about JWU’s activities, accomplishments, news and expertise, and responds to media inquiries on behalf of the university.

Official comments from members of the JWU community may be sought by representatives of the media, including reporters at student newspapers, in response to events and other newsworthy topics. It is imperative that one authorized person speaks for the university to deliver an appropriate message in a timely manner to any media inquiry. If contacted by media without prior approval from JWU University Communications, every employee is expected to indicate that they are not authorized to comment on behalf of JWU and refer requestor to their University Communications contact. Upon receiving the request, University Communications will coordinate with the appropriate university spokesperson designated to respond on behalf of the university.

University Communications at each campus requests that faculty, staff and students consult with or inform them prior to any of the following interactions:

  • responding to requests from the media regarding their research, scholarship, teaching or professional expertise
  • inviting media to campus for academic or extracurricular purposes
  • collaborating with an outside organization to help promote their media relations efforts as a representative of JWU
