The Department of Public Relations is the official source for Colorado State news, information and expert sources and university-wide events.

The department is committed to informing the public and university community about the quality and diversity of the learning environment at CSU, the level of scholarship and research, and the university’s dedication to finding practical solutions to the great global challenges we face today.

What We Do

Media Relations

Connecting reporters with the nation’s — and often the world’s — leading experts on a range of topics to promote university news and information to various audiences through local, state, national and international media outlets. CSU has many stories to share about its research, people and programs and the Public Relations team offers a variety of ways to promote these successes.

Community Relations

Establishing consistent two-way communication with key constituent organizations, the Public Relations team is working to enhance and build relationships CSU has with important communities in northern Colorado and across the state.

Social Media

Public Relations is at the forefront of exploring and using new ways of communication to reach journalists and key publics within the growing social media realm. As  more people turn to the Web to receive news, CSU Public Relations is an active player in online communities and networks.

Denver Public Relations

As part of a broader effort to connect CSU to Denver, a Denver-based office was established to orchestrate public relations efforts to promote Colorado State University in Denver. The office supports alumni, marketing, development, legislative affairs and the Office of the President to direct communications strategies and support efforts in Denver.
