The Communications Office staff plans, researches, writes and distributes reputation-defining messages that highlight interesting and newsworthy College information, people and events.
To assure that materials released to the media are accurate, timely and consistent in style and quality, all materials (including photographs) released to the media must be coordinated and released through the Communications Office.
The staff will determine the most appropriate distribution method for the information: internal, local, statewide or national. Releases also are posted on the Seminole State website in The Newsroom and/or MySeminoleState.
Types of releases:
Do you have a story that you would like us to cover? Send us the info and, if available, a related photo. Seminole State faculty and staff are welcome to submit news to the Communications Office via the TIM system:
You can also email story tips to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the request is received, a member of the Communications staff will follow up with you within two business days. For more information about submitting news for publication, contact Jay Davis at ext. 2418.
Please remember that media coverage is never guaranteed. Each media outlet decides which stories and events it will cover, based on the newsworthiness of the item, its timeliness, and space and time constraints. Although the Communications staff can release a story, the amount and type of coverage it receives is ultimately up to each media outlet. It is not the policy of the Communications Office to re-send previously issued releases or to issue multiple releases on a single event.
