University Marketing and Communications

Office of Public Relations

The Office of Public Relations provides support to campus constituents in the form of communication planning, crisis communication strategy, event promotion, internal communications, media relations, and writing and editing. Through these efforts, we seek to enhance the image of Butler University and broaden the public's awareness and understanding of the University's mission, its people, and its contributions to higher education.

Through media relations efforts, our staff secure placements for the University's more than 100 faculty and staff experts. See our guidelines for covering news on campus.

Internal communications at Butler are distributed several ways, including the daily Connection, all-campus listservs, and branded emails. See our e-communications procedures for usage information.

We encourage faculty and staff members to contact us with story ideas, as well as seek our assistance in responding to media inquiries. Events that require promotion to campus or to external audiences should be provided to us a minimum of three weeks before the event date. See our full list of tips for working with our office.
