Campus Communication Channels

Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to submit announcements, news, calendar items, and story ideas to the Office of Public Relations as it acts as a clearinghouse for the dissemination of information to Bradley constituencies including all media. Staff members will consult with campus groups to determine the best channels to use to reach the desired internal and external audience(s).
