Public Relations & Media Management

The UC public relations team performs a variety of strategic communications roles that forge and strengthen mutually beneficial relationships between the University and key internal and external audiences.

The public relations team works directly with Drake’s administrative leadership, alumni, current and prospective students, faculty and staff, local business and government leaders, and the general public to advance the University’s image and reputation.

Staff members use numerous communications vehicles that include press releases, web articles and feature stories, original content across multiple social media platforms, and audience-specific electronic alumni newsletters, including eBlue and eLaw.

In addition, the public relations staff works closely with Drake’s administrative leadership to maximize their strategic visibility in local and national media, in trade publications, and at industry conferences.

Other services include:

  • Crisis communication
  • Media training
  • Consulting in multiple areas, including social media strategy, traditional and digital advertising strategies, and internal communication strategies
