Resources for Communicators
MOUNTAINEER E-News is published daily at 9 a.m. Monday through Friday. The companion
enews.wvu.edu, is updated daily. All content must be submitted using the
E-News Submission Form. Except in extraordinary circumstances, please submit
the item at least 48 hours in advance of the date it needs to be published. E-News
tries to accommodate requests to run announcements multiple times – but not more
than once a week, and not more than twice.
Sent via email to WVU faculty and staff each Monday afternoon, WVU Weekly features topics and events that put the University, faculty and staff in the media spotlight. These are focused primarily on regional, national and international news coverage. WVU Weekly will also highlight news coverage of timely issues and events related to higher education.
Current Students Website/Unews
University Relations maintains students.wvu.edu to deliver announcements to WVU Morgantown students. In addition to appearing on the Current Students website, announcement titles play on the Information Stations around campus. Campus communicators are welcome to submit an announcement using the Campus Announcement Submission Form. Submissions are also considered for Unews, an email sent to Morgantown students on Mondays and Thursdays (sorry, we cannot guarantee placement in Unews).
Crisis Communications Plan
In the event of a crisis or disaster at West Virginia University, the University Relations/Office of Communications will shoulder the main responsibility in communicating with all constituencies, both internal and external, including media and the community. The Crisis Communications Plan details a roadmap for how University Relations/Office of Communications will fulfill that responsibility.
