Promoting to the public

Start with Milligan’s PR Office (pr@milligan.edu or 461.8764).

All news releases, announcements to the community, posters, media interviews, etc. must be approved and coordinated by the PR office. We are happy to help you develop and execute a promotional plan for your announcement or event. Please start no later than three weeks prior to the event.

If you are contacted by the media, please contact the PR office first before responding.

We want your story ideas! We’re always looking for features to release to the media or use in the magazine, as well as ideas for student profiles and social media posts.

Lost & Found: Milligan’s official Lost and Found is located in the Registrar’s office (Stacy Dahlman) in Derthick Hall. Contact SRDahlman@milligan.edu to have your lost item posted on the Lost & Found page.

Emergency alerts about crisis situations, including weather-related changes, will be sent as text messages and emails. All Milligan students, faculty, and staff can register for RAVE emergency alerts here.
