Contact and About

The Office of Media Relations works with news media and others to highlight the activities and accomplishments of Ithaca College's faculty, staff, and students. Our primary mission is to provide accurate and relevant information to the media, the campus community, and the general public. We are part of the larger Office of Marketing Communications.

For the Media

If you are a member of the media, you can ask to be placed on our mailing list to receive news releases in your preferred format. We can also assist you in arranging interviews and in finding an appropriate resource on campus to help you with a story. You can also receive our latest stories and releases on Twitter @IthacaNews.

The media are regularly welcomed to attend and cover events, activities, and other programs on campus that are open to the general public. In order to most effectively serve the interests of both the media and the campus community, we ask that you contact the Office of Media Relations prior to coming to campus to photograph, record, or interview faculty, staff, students, and guests. As a private institution, Ithaca College reserves the right to limit access to its properties and facilities.

For the IC Community

If you are a member of the Ithaca College community, we can assist you with your questions about publicizing your upcoming events, research, honors, and other activities for the news media. We can also help you respond appropriately to inquiries from reporters and requests for interviews. In order to most effectively assist you, we ask that you contact us early -- at least three weeks before a scheduled event -- as timing is critical in the news business. The more notice you provide our office, the better we will be able to help.
