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 two 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.
