The mission of PSU’s Office of Public Relations (OPR) is to promote the University and its programs in the most compelling and effective way possible.
We assist departments, offices, and organizations across campus with strategic communication planning, graphic design, and writing and editing that convey PSU’s key messages with our diverse audiences.
Within OPR are three complementary divisions that manage the broad spectrum of the University’s communication needs:
Media Relations works with local, regional, and national media to share University news, disseminates news releases to members of the media, and responds to media inquires. It also produces FYI, the daily campus news source, and provides photography services to campus constituencies.
Publications provides consulting, writing, editorial, and design services for a wide variety of University publications, including the PSU’s flagship publication, Plymouth Magazine; the award-winning faculty and staff Excellence book; art exhibition catalogs; brochures; advertising and promotional materials; and much more. Publications also provides leadership, oversight, and management for the PSU brand to ensure consistent brand execution.
Web assists departments with website development, provides faculty and staff with best practice guidelines for Web and social media, and coordinates internal and external electronic and social media communication efforts within the context of the PSU brand.
