Office of Public Relations & Marketing Media Inquiry Guidelines
It is important to the overall reputation of Gainesville State College (GSC) that all media inquiries be fielded through the Office of Public Relations and Marketing (PR&M). There are more than 50 media outlets in the College’s service area and it is imperative that we fairly and accurately disseminate information to these outlets without showing favoritism or preferential treatment.
It is the responsibility of the Office of PR&M to produce and distribute media releases on behalf of the College. A process is in place through the Facilities Request Form to request that a media release be created for events and activities which are scheduled to take place. Request may also be made directly to the Director of PR&M. Faculty and staff members are discouraged from contacting the media directly. From time to time, the Director of PR&M will refer media personnel to faculty or staff members to answer particular questions. The Director will give the faculty or staff member advance notice that media personnel will be contacting them.
In the event that a member of the media contacts a faculty or staff member directly, the faculty or staff member is asked to first inquire if the media representative has been in contact with the Office of PR&M. If they have not, the faculty or staff member is encouraged to inform the media personnel that initial contact should be made through the Office of PR&M. If a faculty or staff member responds directly to media personnel, they are asked to promptly contact the Office of PR&M to give an update of the information that was provided.
Please remember that there is no such thing as “off the record”. Everything that is said or written to the media is “on the record” and can be printed or played back for public consumption.
