The Office of Media Relations serves as a liaison between the media and the College community. The Media Relations Team has established relationships with reporters and editors in newsrooms both local and national and we work with them to generate positive publicity about College accomplishments.
In addition to consistently promoting the College’s successes and impressive slate of faculty, we handle times of crisis - whether there’s an emergency that disrupts campus operations or a more complicated issue. We also serve as the primary contact for fielding queries from the media and make arrangements for interviews with faculty experts.
The Media Relations staff uses social media to disseminate news about the College. Our news releases can be found on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube (in video form). We are part of the College’s Social Media Team and help to maintain the official College of Charleston accounts.
