Media Resources

Troy University's Office of University Relations offers a variety of resources for journalists looking to cover TROY. We can provide high-resolution photos or video, and arrange interviews with University faculty and administrators. Our online news center contains the latest news releases and feature articles about TROY, and our Experts Directory can put journalists in touch with faculty members who can provide perspective on a wide range of political, cultural and social issues.

Faculty and Staff Support

The Office of University Relations assists faculty, staff and student organizations in developing news releases, media advisories and event promotion. Faculty, staff and student leaders should contact the University Relations staff to coordinate all releases to the media and the public.

Submissions for external release (press releases, media advisories) should be directed to Clif Lusk.

To request special event coordination, contact Andy Ellis.

  • Identify, in left to right order, all people in a photograph
