Media Relations

The Office of Media Relations seeks to promote St. John’s University, its academic initiatives, student and faculty accomplishments, and its work to enhance our community through the media.

The Office handles all publicity efforts for the University in dealing with local, national and international print, TV, radio and Internet opportunities. All external communication involving press releases, press conferences, media interview requests, publicity driven-event coordination and academic programming initiatives, as well as University statements about topical subject matter for media consideration, come from of the Office of Media Relations.

Elizabeth Reilly, Director of Media Relations, has been with St. John’s since 2003. She oversees the operations of the office and handles the distribution of information to the press. Administrative Assistant Diane Blascovich handles direct contact with media inquiries and the day-to-day operations of the office. She has been on staff for more than three years. Two Graduate Assistants support all work related items pertaining to press release distribution, phone contact, coordination of research and events and general office duties.
