Office of Communications & Marketing

We need Heroes: We are looking for professional accomplishments, personal triumphs and just plain “feel-good” stories, and we invite you to share what you know about colleagues, students or alumni through this form. Stories may appear on the web site, E-news, Alfred Magazine, social media, or Admissions publications. Please send your completed form to Susan Goetschius once complete.

Press releases: Have a lecture, performance or other event to promote to the general public? Have an idea for a feature story you think might be appealing to the news media? Call 607-871-2103 or e-mail one of us with the information.
