The office of institutional communications works to establish relationships with local and national media, securing regular coverage of Loyola and its programs and events, as well as serving as a resource for media outlets seeking faculty experts.

Media Relations

Among the office of institutional communications' most visible activities are its media relations efforts. Media Relations Manager Nick Alexopulos manages relationships with local and national media, secures regular coverage of Loyola and its programs and events, serves as a resource for media outlets seeking faculty experts, and leads the University's social media programs.

He can help you:

  • Develop public relations plans
  • Draft and distribute press releases and media alerts
  • Work with the office of Web communications to post relevant news to the Loyola website
  • Coordinate the placement of newspaper, TV, and radio advertisements for University events

Alexopulos maintains the Faculty Experts Guide, a database of faculty and their areas of expertise. Members of the media wishing to contact a specific faculty member are asked to first contact Alexopulos, who will then coordinate a meeting or phone call if the faculty member is available. Faculty members wishing to join the list or to update their information can do so using Faculty Experts Information Form.

Other Institutional Communications

Members of the University community interested in assistance developing letters, emails, newsletters, event scripts, or other communications for students, University employees, alumni, parents, and others, are encouraged to contact institutional communications at ext. 5025.
