Frequently Asked Questions

What about the TWU home page?

Is your event is open to – and of interest to – the general public? If so, we may be able to include it in the Events section of the TWU home page, depending on how many other events are going on at the same time. Before we can put anything on TWU Home, your event needs to be published on the TWU Calendar of Events and, if possible, your department’s website.

Can Marketing & Communication send out a news release?

You may request a news release on an event if it meets the following criteria:

  • The event is open to the general public
  • The event is of interest to the general public
  • The event is scheduled at a date and time accessible to the general public.
  • The event has been added to the TWU Calendar of Events and your department website.

To request a news release, email Deanna W. Titzler or Karen Garcia at least three weeks prior to the event. Be sure to include the date, subject, time, location and information as to why the general public should be interested in attending.

Please note: Requests will be prioritized according to the above criteria, and at peak times not all requests may be fulfilled. Sending a news release to the media does not guarantee publication. Media outlets determine which events they publish.
