Media Policy

THANK YOU for your interest in Clark University.

The free pursuit of inquiry and the free exchange of ideas are central to Clark’s commitment to prepare students to meet the challenges of a complex and rapidly changing society. The University strives for timely, candid and helpful cooperation with media members covering newsworthy events, students, faculty and other resources on the campus.

The Media Relations staff is here to help ensure efficient, accurate and effective newsgathering.

Jane Salerno, Director, Media Relations – 508.793.7554; jsalerno@clarku.edu  Fax: 508.793.7565

Angela Bazydlo, Associate Director, Media Relations – 508.793.7635; abazydlo@clarku.edu

Media Relations staff will be available to help you with the following and more:

·        Locate and access interview sources such as FACULTY EXPERTS

·        Arrange use of appropriate spaces, lighting, backdrops, props, etc.

·        Find clear directions and help with parking arrangements

·        Collect background information or official comment needed for accurate and balanced reporting.

The safety, privacy, and unimpeded academic and extracurricular pursuits of Clark students, faculty, and staff are priorities. Residence halls and classrooms/labs are off limits without prior arrangement through the Media Relations office. Commercial production companies and non-news related media are required to contact University Marketing and Communications before conducting business on campus.

In the event of emergency, the University administration and/or law enforcement or fire personnel can close the campus or areas on campus to the public, including members of media. In such a crisis, staff will work to arrange off-site or alternative ways to provide media outlets with accurate and up-to-date information.
