“Getting the word out” is a phrase heard often in the Office of Public Affairs, where the staff works to advance Northern Arizona University’s mission and vision and to promote the accomplishments of students, faculty and staff.
We work with the media and NAU departments to send out press releases, participate in crisis communication, provide public information, answer questions, arrange press conferences, find experts and many other functions related to mass communication. We also engage in all official university social media activities on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, RebelMouse and Pinterest.
All on-campus filming requests should be sent to email@example.com. Please allow two weeks for processing, which requires proof of commercial general liability insurance and workers compensation coverage.
Office staff is available 24/7 for emergencies and is readily available to anyone seeking help with getting the word out.
