Drexels media appearances

Media Relations

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 News & 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 works around the clock to function as spokespeople for the University and to connect broadcast, print and online journalists with the necessary resources to tell compelling and accurate narratives. We can also coordinate requests for filming by non-media entities on Drexel’s campuses.

Functioning within individualized beats, the members of the News & Media Relations team 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, national and international media outlets. The team coordinates with Drexel experts to provide specialized insight to the media when news breaks, and collaborates long-term with faculty to provide ongoing expertise as regular contributors and op-ed writers. Our News & Media Relations team has placed Drexel stories and faculty experts in outlets that range from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and The Philadelphia Inquirer to BBC, CNN, Fox News and NBC News.
