Media Relations

Everyone Has a Story. We Want to Tell Yours.

We are responsible for the University of San Francisco's interaction with the print, broadcast, and online media, as well as the dissemination of university news and information. We provide strategic communications consultation and extensive media relations services to the USF community and external news media.  

We draft news releases, media advisories, calendar listings, and other materials to publicize news of faculty research, academic programs, and newsworthy university happenings. We develop story angles, work with reporters, connect media with faculty, and distribute information to local, national, and international news organizations. 

We also provide public relations counsel and communication support to the entire university community on a variety of communication issues.

Do you need help drafting a press release? Are you an accomplished academic in your field who is willing to speak to the media? Are you a reporter trying to locate an academic expert? Email or call Anne-Marie Devine, senior director of media relations, at (415) 422-2697 (mobile: (415) 279-9137).
