University Relations

The University Relations team is responsible for working with the news media, elected officials and other key external audiences. Working with colleagues at each UW institution, team members are responsible for maintaining open lines of communication with the executive and legislative branches of state government. The team serves as a primary point of contact for news reporters seeking information about the UW System, and produces a variety of print and electronic publications, including this UW System website, to serve both internal and external audiences.
