Strategic Communication

Media Relations and Media Training

We generate publicity and awareness around Loyola news and events, pitching stories, coordinating all interviews with the media, and maintaining a faculty experts database. We also provide media training to help prepare faculty, staff, and administrators for interactions with
the media.

Please contact Matt McDermott at mbedugnis@luc.edu.

Crisis Management

In the unfortunate event of a crisis on campus, we alert and update the Loyola community according to our crisis communication plan.

Social Media


In addition to managing the University brand social media accounts, we offer strategic counsel to help faculty and staff leverage social media to engage their audiences through department or division accounts.

Please contact Elizabeth Shea at eshea5@luc.edu with further inquiries about Loyola social media.


Internal Communications

University-wide news alerts and updates, including messages from the Office of the President, are sent by UMC via special broadcast e-mails to all students, faculty, and staff. We consider submissions to Inside Loyola for events and announcements you would like to promote; submissions must be made two weeks in advance of the release date. We also manage Rambler Buzz for students and the University Calendar system, which publishes the main calendar and events posted by Loyola employees and students.

To submit information for Inside Loyola, please contact Emily Ramstetter at eramstetter@luc.edu.

Submit events to post through the University Calendar system at LUC.edu/calendar.
