Announcements | Faculty Expertise | Speaking to Press | Crisis Communications
The Communications Team maintains relations with press and media on behalf of the University, circulating and disseminating information internally and externally, while closely monitoring Arcadia’s presence in the world.
University Communications is the primary and sole press and media relations office on campus. All media requests (print, electronic, and other) should be forwarded to Daniel DiPrinzio, Director of Communications; or Donna Whitlock, Media Communications Manager, before being answered. The Communications Team works closely with news media and other external media outlets on publicizing Arcadia news and events; on connecting faculty, staff, students, and other campus members with media outlets, when appropriate; and responding to media requests.
Students, faculty, staff, or other members of the Arcadia University community who wish to publicize success stories should contact the Communications team, who will strategize on the appropriate development and releasing of the stories.
University Communications wants to promote faculty and staff expertise and publicize scholarship and research. Faculty who would like to pursue press coverage and publication are encouraged to use the Faculty Expertise Form to input their expertise, publications, and other related information to help University Communications publicize such successes and knowledge. University Communications will use this information to connect faculty with journalists searching for experts.
University Communications also offers the community time to coordinate their message, and prepare for their interview. We will also vet the reporter, and may know him/her, and ensure the story direction, as well as find out if they have other stories in the works.
University in a State of Crisis or Other Concerns
University Communications supports faculty and staff when speaking to press on their proven area of expertise. Conversely during a time of crisis, if faculty or staff of Arcadia are contacted for a statement on behalf of the University or matters that involve the institution as a whole, journalists must be referred to University Communications. Our internal team will determine the appropriate representative or statement for the institution.
During the coordination of emergency response on Arcadia University’s campus, University Communications is the primary contact for all media (reporters, inquiries, interview requests.)
Communications channels for the Arcadia Community to receive updates during an emergency situation include the following:
