News and Communication

 Justin Murdock (right) and Alfred Kalyanapu will lead Tech’s team evaluating wetlands enrolled in the USDA Wetlands Reserve Program.

The News & Communication staff work with local and national media contacts to tell Tech's stories. As experienced media and communications professionals, we work to promote a positive image of the university and to share information about the accomplishments of Tennessee Tech students, faculty and staff. 

Our primary responsibilities are to create and distribute news releases and to maintain relationships with media representatives. We also write for the university's alumni magazine, Visions, and produce stories and video for the university website and social media sites.

We encourage administrators, faculty, staff and students to work with us to get the word out about the great things happening at Tennessee Tech.

News and Communications staff can be reached by email or phone. If you are a reporter on deadline, please include your deadline information in your message or email.
