The following forms are meant to be used exclusively by Drake University faculty, students and staff. The Drake public relations team strongly suggests sending information about upcoming events and stories at least two weeks prior to when you would like our office to start publicizing them. Information submitted here will be sent to the public relations team in the Marketing and Communications office.
We appreciate you taking time to share information and ideas. Filling out this form does not guarantee the event will be publicized. Stories will be approved and rewritten at the discretion of the Drake University public relations staff.
Releases are limited to events that are open to the general public.
Due to the high volume of requests, event news releases will not be written if information is received less than one week before the event.
Feature stories can be pitched to the media and/or published as news highlights on the Drake home page and in various electronic newsletters.
Story ideas are entered into a database used by Marketing and Communications staff to develop editorial content for all university communications vehicles, including Blue magazine.
Faculty and staff may share news of fellowships, awards and other recognitions to be highlighted on the Drake home page and on blueView. These posts celebrate achievements within the Drake community and may also be used to promote accomplishments to outside media and organizations.
Forms that are submitted as completely as possible help the public relations staff accommodate requests for accomplishment postings.
