Institutional Communications

Institutional Communications Department


The Department of Institutional Communications is home to University Communications and Community Relations. We're working every day to raise the profile of the University of Wyoming.

Whether you are a journalist looking for an expert or a member of the university community seeking advice on working with the media, Communications can help.

  • We maintain a searchable list of our world-class faculty experts.
  • We have built a database that lists media and interest groups who are interested in our news.
  • We can direct news releases, media advisories and announcements to where they will have the most impact.
  • If you have been contacted by a reporter, we offer tips and guidance for a successful interview.
  • If you want to see UW in the news, we track those stories and provide links to them.
  • We produce stories for publication accompanied by outstanding images, to showcase the talents and achievements of the university community.
  • In emergency situations, the Communications staff keeps UW informed and up to date with announcements, UW Alerts and e-mails.
  • To keep our faculty and staff connected, we provide services such as the daily planning calendar and the weekly faculty and staff newsletter.
  • And we cannot forget our university operators, who are on the frontline of communications, fielding calls and directing them to their destinations.

Benefits of Communications

The University of Wyoming has a great story to tell, and the Department of Institutional Communications can help tell it most effectively, whether it's reaching out to a particular reporter or drafting a comprehensive media plan for a significant event.

The experts on the Communications staff can offer guidance on how to craft a news release, when to submit an op-ed column, whether you need a comprehensive media kit and how to reach out to partners in Laramie, Wyoming and across the region and the country.
