Press Inquiries

The Vice President for Institutional Advancement is the official spokesperson for the college and serves as the initial contact point for all press inquiries.

In most cases, a reporter who is writing a story or wants specific information on a particular topic will need to speak to the appropriate faculty or staff member. In these cases, the Office of Institutional Advancement will refer the reporter to the department chair who will in turn decide whom within his/her department is best to answer the particular question.

In other cases, a reporter may contact a member of the staff or faculty directly. In these cases, please notify the Office of the Vice President for Institutional Advancement with the name of the media and the reporter along with the nature of the inquiry.

Under no circumstances should staff and faculty members initiate contacts with the press without the prior approval of the Vice President of Institutional Advancement or the President of Orange County Community College.
