News Bureau --We can deliver news releases for you to media outlets throughout
Kansas and beyond. For assistance in preparing and distributing news
releases, please give us enough advance notice. The process involves
not only preparation of the release but consideration of deadlines at
the media outlets you want to target. The bottom line: the more notice,
the better. We can also provide helpful counseling on how to work effectively
with the media. For information or assistance, contact our Assistant
Director Kurt Beyers at email@example.com.
Our office produces a wide range of printed materials, from promotional
items for the university at large to brochures, pamphlets and business
forms for specific departments and offices, to magazines and newsletters.
Our graphic design department, headed by Art Director Mary Ridgway (firstname.lastname@example.org),
can assist you in developing your publications. It is important that
you allow ample time for the typically lengthy process of writing, designing,
printing and distributing publications.
Special Events --
The Office of University Relations regularly assists the President's
Office, the FHSU Foundation, the Alumni Association, the Sternberg Museum
of Natural History, the Docking Institute of Public Affairs, academic
departments and various other campus organizations in planning, promoting
and conducting special events. These events include a wide range of
activities such as news conferences, grand openings, Homecoming, TailGreat,
dedication ceremonies and others. If your office believes an activity
or accomplishment would merit some sort of special event, we can assist
you with coordination and planning.
Promoting Our Brand --
Working closely with the President's Office and the Brand Implementation
Team, the Office of University Relations uses the university's brand
identity and brand drivers to help market the university through publicity
and advertising. All our publicity efforts should reinforce the goals
and strengths identified in those statements. We also supervise the
university's licensing program, which controls the commercial use of
Fort Hays State University's protected identity marks -- such as the
university name, logo, mascot and seal. Detailed information about all
uses of the university's identity marks can be obtained from our Identity
Standards Manual. Brochures about licensing and identity standards are
also available in our office.
