The Internal Communications Department works to promote local, national and worldwide visibility for the university, its faculty and staff. The department maintains a commitment to informing the public and the university community about the quality and diversity of its learning environment, the level of scholarship and research, its dedication to civic engagement and commitment to contributing to the economic development of the region. External Communications also provides planning, implementation, assessment and evaluation of public relations services to meet the needs of the university. The department provides communication/public relations planning, crisis communications and issues management support as well as internal communications.
Contact External Communications to publicize any WSSU special event; plan and coordinate press conferences; create and distribute press releases and media advisories and develop story ideas to generate additional media exposure of the university's initiatives.
If you have an immediate need for external communications (e.g., with the media), please contact the Director of Media Relations Aaron Singleton at (336)750-3152 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
