The Office of Campus Relations is the primary source of information for and about the campus, and the primary channel of communication between the campus and the public.

The office is responsible for news, information and media relations and the maintenance of files of FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests.

In addition, the office works closely with the chancellor regarding public and media relations.
