Public Relations

Utah Tech University is trailblazing new frontiers every day, and the UMAC public relations team employs various techniques to share UT updates, announcements, and accomplishments with audiences around the globe. To request public relations support, which is free of charge to all UT staff and faculty, please click on the Request Publicity button below.

  • Press Releases — UMAC sends press releases about significant accomplishments and large-scale community events to more than 40 journalists throughout the state. Media outlets determine if they edit and publish the press release, assign the story idea to a journalist to create an original story, or pass on the idea. Requests for press releases announcing large-scale events must be submitted to UMAC 3 weeks prior to the event to allow UMAC time to write the release, the media time to edit the release, and the public time to see the posted article.
  • Blazer Bulletin Posts — PubUT’s crowd-sourced blog enables the person most knowledgeable and passionate about a news item to submit a fully written blog post and accompanying images to directly reach people who seek information about Utah Tech. Once the Blazer Bulletin post is published, UMAC will share the link with you so you can post it on your social media accounts.
  • Social Media Posts — UMAC loves to share accomplishments on Utah Tech’s official accounts on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, X, YouTube and LinkedIn. Good news shared on social media must have high-quality, beautiful photos or videos to post alongside the news. UMAC does not post flyers on social media.
