Resources for Communicators

E-News

MOUNTAINEER E-News is published daily at 9 a.m. Monday through Friday. The companion website,  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.

WVU Weekly

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.

How to Work With UR/Comms

University Relations provides a wide range of marketing and communication services, including design, digital signage, Web, news, photography, campus visits, trademark/brand, video, editorial and others. To request our services, start by filling out the Project Request Form.

Photo Request Forms

Let us give your projects a professional flair. Please submit the Request a Photoshoot Form to schedule a University photographer for your event or activity. Requests must be submitted at least 36 hours before the photoshoot is to take place. University Relations also offers a gallery of WVU images that you may order using the Digital File Request Form. Prints are available by selecting the Buy Photos option above the upper right corner of the image you wish to purchase.

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 Fridays (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.
