Beat System

University Relations is configured using a "beat system" to cover all areas of the campus. The beat person designated for each area is the client relations consultant for our office.

Your beat person will be able to guide you through the University Relations project request process as well as answer general questions. Please either contact your beat person or fill out the project request form and someone will get back to you. If you have a general question about news, please email:
