Got a story to tell? An event to publicize? There are now more ways than ever to let a range of audiences know. Because no one person or office at UNH oversees all the outlets, here's a guide to ensure your news, such as new research published in a journal or book, an engaging event, a large grant, a fantastic student research or community project, gets the best possible attention on campus and beyond.
External News Media
If your story or event is likely to be compelling to people beyond UNH – locally, regionally, or nationally – contact UNH Media Relations about getting the word out to the media. Please contact us a few weeks in advance of your event or happening, so we can give reporters time to plan for it. You can learn more about who to contact in Media Relations by going here.
Campus Journal is the online newsletter for UNH faculty and staff. It publishes weekly during the academic year and every other week in the summer. Specific sections include On the Bookshelf and Kudos. Contact Editor Jody Record (email@example.com) with story ideas. Deadline for submission is noon on Tuesday.
The UNH homepage features three to five rotating photos and captions each week (updated on Fridays); each image leads to an existing page of information. To have your news considered for a UNH homepage photo, e-mail Webmaster Bridget Finnegan (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least three weeks in advance of the Friday when you'd like it to begin running. Items under UNH News are generated from news releases, internal communications, and other sources. Items under Calendar are generated from the UNH Calendar (see below).
This publication will move to a weekly news magazine format in mid-November.
Sponsoring departments or organizations must enter their own information about public events onto the UNH Calendar: http://www.unh.edu/calendar/
