How to Pitch Us

What we do:

Public relations staff in the Office of Communications write, create and edit all editorial content for the homepage of the FDU website, the University’s official social media channels, the FDU What’s New hub page and the press release and feature story archives.

Most of the digital material we create fits into four categories: feature articles, press releases, deep captions and social posts. A large amount of this content comes from information we actively seek out, but the University community also passes along interesting details and leads. Thanks! We need your eyes and ears to help us find the best and most important University stories and news to report. Based on what we receive, our team determines which type of content it’s best suited to become.
