Getting the Word Out at UNH and Beyond

Got a story to tell? An event to publicize? 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.

What is a News Story?

If you have a story, we want to tell it. Let us know about:

Research the public will be interested in. If you're not sure, call us anyway. We are interested in results, as well as on-going projects. To maximize the impact of your story, we like to get the news out immediately before it is published. If you're working on something big that is about to appear in an academic journal, let us know.

Expert commentary on breaking state, regional, national or international news. We can help you write an opinion/editorial, or let media know you have something important to say.

Public service or outreach projects. Let us know before you visit a city or town, so we can work with local media.

Books, authored or edited, that are about to be published.

Partnerships with state agencies, projects or research.

Innovative courses or projects.

Advance publicity for meetings and conferences. Give us a month's lead time on these. Also, while we'll do our best to get reporters to cover your event, we do not provide coverage.

Outstanding students involved in research or community outreach projects.
