The Illinois Tech story is shared in many different ways with key audiences.
Illinois Tech’s daily newsletter to faculty, staff, and students is available online. Event and news submissions must be sent via the online submission form. Please note that all required information must be included in order to be considered for publication. IIT Today editors reserve the right to edit copy and/or request changes before it is published. Only information and events of direct interest to the Illinois Tech community will be considered for publication.
Illinois Tech’s award-winning IIT Magazine is produced three times a year (Spring, Fall, and Winter) and is available in a print as well as an online version. For more information, please contact Marcia Faye, editor.
M&C only handles mass email sends on behalf of the Office of the President, as well as campus-wide emergency notifications. However, if your department would like to send an email, M&C can certainly suggest mail programs, as well as assist with design of header graphics. For more information regarding mass emails, please contact Denise Moriarty.
The Vice President of Marketing & Communications is the official spokesperson for the university. All requests from reporters should be forwarded to M&C for follow-up to Mark Zonca. If you are interviewed by a representative of a news outlet, trade journal, or professional journal, please let M&C know so that we can share that information with the Illinois Tech community and follow-up as appropriate to achieve wider coverage of the news.
All engagements with media representatives by Illinois Tech faculty, staff and students, on behalf of Illinois Institute of Technology, should be coordinated with the Office of Marketing and Communications at least three full business days in advance, in order to promote and protect the public image of the university, build openness and accountability, and respect the media's role. It is the university’s responsibility to provide accurate and consistent information to the media and avoid any misunderstanding, misinterpretation, or confusion.
The Office of Marketing and Communications should be notified about all media inquiries. All university press releases, media notices, media outreach and advisories must be coordinated and approved by the Office of Marketing and Communications.
Emergency Alert System
In the case of an emergency that affects the well-being of the IIT community, M&C will send out information via an emergency alert system. You must be signed up for the alert via email and/or phone/text in order to receive the information. In certain cases, emergency information will also appear on the IIT home page.
