Public Affairs Policies

The Office of Public Affairs and External Relations handles all media relations for the university, students, faculty, and staff. The department is responsible for external and internal university relations; the production of Loyola at a Glance, a weekly e-newsletter; LoyNews, a weekly e-newswire for news media; and Neighborhood News, a newsletter for Loyola’s neighbors.

In addition, Public Affairs staff manages and produces donor- and alumni-related events, plan special events such as inaugurals and dedications, and coordinate commencement exercises. The Office of Public Affairs also coordinates all official university photography requests.
