The Assistant to the President for Government and Community Relations is the official spokesperson for Monroe Community College; the Government and Community Relations Office serves as the initial contact point for all press inquiries. Any contact with the media must be initiated or approved by the MCC Government and Community Relations Office. This ensures that the College presents itself effectively and in a manner that meets both the College’s and the media’s interests.
If you are contacted directly by a reporter, please let the Government and Community Relations Department know. If the journalist is seeking your perspective as an expert in a particular field, feel free to comment to the extent to which you are comfortable. If, however, the reporter is seeking information on any other aspect of MCC, it is important to call the Government and Community Relations Office before granting the interview. In just a few minutes, we can help you maximize the opportunity by focusing on key messages, verifying information and helping avoid the chance that information you provide might somehow be misconstrued.
Please Note: Responses to media inquiries need to be addressed immediately. Reporters’ deadlines are usually very tight.
