Office of Public Relations

The mission of the Office of Public Relations is to support and promote Tulane University through positive media coverage, the effective use of social media and the creation of compelling internal communications.  We serve the public by connecting the media with experts who can provide vital information from the sciences, medicine, law, business, architecture, the humanities, public health and other disciplines. The Office of Public Relations plays a vital role in coordinating the university’s crisis response and communications during emergencies.
