Media Relations

The Media Relations office in the Department of University Relations is the official producer of news about Northwestern University. The staff promotes news that results in major media coverage and that is showcased on the University’s homepage. Northwestern News also is distributed through e-mail, through a printed newspaper for faculty and staff and the Northwestern alumni magazine. The office covers breaking news, research, arts, events and faculty, student and staff issues from Northwestern’s three busy campuses in Evanston, Chicago and Doha, Qatar.
