Media Policies

At Henderson State we strongly believe that as a member of the news media you are an important link in providing information to the public about a variety of important issues, including higher education. That's why we work to maintain positive relationships with reporters, editors, and news producers. We regularly provide the media with news tips, sources, story ideas, and information about the events on campus. We welcome the opportunity to help arrange visits to campus, interviews and photo opportunities. Please follow a few guidelines so that we can best serve you.

News Media on Campus

We love to have you visit the campus. But we ask news media to contact the Office of Public Relations before the visit so that we can ensure the privacy of our students, faculty and staff. We will be glad to coordinate parking on campus and help arrange interviews. If you are coming for an event we have publicized in a news release, there is no need to call before arriving.
