General Policies (Chapter 1)
Media Relations (Section 106)
The News Office within the Office of College Relations disseminates information about Smith College to the news media, which includes print and broadcast media with local, regional, national and international audiences. If the News Office determines information may be released, it will direct a reporter to the appropriate employee for that information. Any Smith employee contacted by a member of the media should confirm that the person already has spoken with someone in the News Office before releasing information. Employees may also request to be added to the "News Tracker," a listing of recent media coverage that mentions Smith faculty, students, alumnae and staff, and is distributed by e-mail three times a week. Employees who are interviewed are asked to inform the News Office about the story so that the coverage can be included in the News Tracker and filed.
