University Relations/News staff assist the public in learning about the state’s flagship higher education institution. We respond to media inquiries and provide news organizations with releases, tip sheets and feature story ideas. We also arrange news conferences, radio and television interviews, personal visits to the WVU campus, satellite uplinks of news events and photo shoots.
University Relations/News also is a facilitator for internal communications at WVU, producing the Mountaineer E-News and maintaining the WVU intranet.
