Media Relations at Drexel
Between unparalleled faculty expertise, captivating student successes, and positive community impact, there’s always a new Drexel story in the headlines. Media presence is critical to bringing awareness to stellar University achievements, as well as to advancing Drexel’s reputation on the national stage.
Our Media Relations team’s primary goal is to facilitate news coverage that highlights Drexel people, places, events, and initiatives — including the University’s role as a leader in higher education. Our team of news officers works around the clock to function as spokespeople for the University and to connect print, broadcast, and Internet journalists with the necessary resources to tell compelling and accurate narratives. We can also coordinate requests for filming on Drexel’s campuses.
Functioning within individualized beats, our news officers build close relationships with Drexel sources and members of the media, generating news releases, media advisories, and blog posts to draw the attention of local, domestic, and international media outlets. News officers can coordinate Drexel experts to provide specialized insight to the media when news breaks, and collaborate long-term to provide ongoing expertise as regular contributors and op-ed writers. Our Media Relations team has placed Drexel stories and faculty experts in outlets that range from The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal to CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC.
