Media Relations and Inquiries

Hudson Valley Community College welcomes the opportunity to publicize the achievements, initiatives and special talents of members of the college community.

In order to best facilitate consistent, clear and accurate communication, the Office of Communications and Marketing is designated as the primary contact for all news media inquiries and outreach. Accordingly, all media inquiries, requests to attend events or requests for media interviews should be directed to news@hvcc.edu or (518) 629-8071.

The college President and staff of the Communications and Marketing office serve as official spokespersons and convey the college’s official position in all interactions with the media. However, they may designate another college representative to serve as a spokesperson, when appropriate.

Should a member of the media contact a faculty or staff member and ask to speak about college matters, the inquiry should be referred to the Office of Communications and Marketing.
