Beat assignments

Journalists often cover a "beat," a focus that allows them to more deeply understand the people and issues of a particular area. The Office of University Relations takes the same approach to ensure that we find and tell the best stories the university has to offer. Your beat contact can help you publicize the people, programs and events of your college and assist with other marketing and communication needs. Listed below are the beat contacts for individual colleges. To speak with a beat contact, please contact us at (414) 288-7448 or email below.
