    Media Relations

    As part of the Office of Advancement, the External Relations staff works with news media and others to showcase the good work of Lackawanna College’s faculty, staff, and students. Our primary mission is to provide accurate and relevant information to the media, the campus community, and the general public.

    For the Media

    The External Relations Department would be happy to send news releases to members of the media in your preferred format. Please email your preferences to Christopher Hughes, Manager of Web Content and News Service, at hughesc@lackawanna.edu. Please send any interview requests to either member of our staff so that we can properly facilitate your needs.

    The media are welcome to attend Lackawanna College events that are publicized as being open to the general public. Prior to coming to campus to photograph, record, or interview faculty, staff, students, and guests, we respectfully ask that you contact Wendy Evans, Director of External Relations, at evansw@lackawanna.edu .

    Questions about Lackawanna College’s athletic teams may be addressed to Sports Information Director Joe Paparelli at paparellij@lackawanna.edu.

    Information about the Theater at Lackawanna College can be sent to Jim Cullen, Director of the Theater, at cullenj@lackawanna.edu. Questions about the Community Concerts season and other special events can be addressed by Brandi George, Community Concerts Box Office Manager, at georgeb@lackawanna.edu.

    As a private institution, Lackawanna College reserves the right to limit access to its properties and facilities.

    For the Lackawanna College Community

    As fellow members of the College Community, we understand how important it is to publicize your upcoming events, honors, and other activities for the news media. We can assist you with your public relations questions at any time and help you respond appropriately to inquiries from reporters and requests for interviews. In order to most effectively assist you, we ask that you provide us with at least 2 weeks notice prior to a scheduled event, as timing can be critical when working with the media. The more lead time we have, the more effective we will be in assisting you with your media relations needs.
