Faculty and Staff

MCLA’s Communications Office will write and distribute your press releases to announce your department’s news, as well as your events that are open to the public. Please submit your information to the Communications Office according to the College’s Press Release Guidelines.

In addition to press releases, MCLA’s Communications Office can announce and draw attention to your news and events in a variety of ways: we can invite the press to cover your event, and share your happenings and information through social media. This may include a news article on the MCLA website. These web stories typically lead to additional postings via the College’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.

Beyond the Internet, we also share news and information via articles included in our regular campus publications, including – but not limited to – Admissions newsletters, the Alumni Magazine, and the yearly President’s Report.

Whether or not a press photographer attends your event/happening, we strongly encourage you to take your own photographs to submit to the Communications Office to build MCLA’s library of digital photos to draw upon for various publicity-related endeavors. Please e-mail your photos via Office 365 as high-resolution (large) jpeg attachments to Bernadette Alden, director of marketing and communications,
