Public Relations


The Office of Public Relations gathers and disseminates information that enhances understanding of the University’s mission and its successes as New Jersey’s largest private university. The office handles media relations for major University events and accomplishments, provides media training and serves as a liaison between academic experts and print, broadcast and web-based media.

Additionally, the office manages the University’s news hub — FDU What’s New and runs University-level social media accounts, also providing governance for other campus users. It also produces written and multimedia content to share FDU’s stories with internal and external audiences online. Public Relations plays a key role in University crisis communications planning and provides editorial oversight for the home page of the University’s website.
