University Communications & Public Relations
In University Communications & Public Relations (UComm/PR), our mission is to elevate Texas State University through strategic communications, media relations, and digital engagement.
To achieve this mission, we are focused on telling compelling and engaging stories about the myriad of ways TXST is a top national research university and a vibrant place to learn, discover, create, and serve. We also support presidential communications; collaborate with and advise departments across the university on their respective outreach and communication initiatives; and respond swiftly to crises and reputational challenges when the need arises. Our target audiences are internal in the TXST community (students, faculty, and staff), as well as external (news media, prospective students, parents and families, alumni, and donors).
Stay informed on the latest news and updates from across TXST in the Newsroom – featuring stories about research, innovation, faculty accolades, student enrichment, and more. Check out the top TXST media mentions in news outlets. UComm/PR also handles on-campus filming requests, and crafts pitches for reporters at national and international news outlets.
The bi-monthly digital newsletter TXST News keeps Bobcats and friends of Texas State informed with the latest articles from the Newsroom delivered straight to their inboxes.
