Media Relations

For News Media

The Public Information office is the official point of contact for all news media outlets. We encourage the news media to contact our office to assist with campus visits (including arranging for parking passes) and student and employee interviews. Students and employees are encouraged to contact the Marketing and Public Information office with any newsworthy activity, event, or accomplishment in order to inform the news media and the general public.

We are eager to assist reporters with needed information and visuals and will work to respond to your requests as quickly as possible. We are here to help you locate sources, arrange interviews or photography, and receive information on important issues.

If you are a reporter and would like to receive Edmonds College press releases, please call 425.563.3097 or email news@edmonds.edu. To view our archives, visit edmonds.edu/news/stories.
