Getting Publicity for Your Upcoming Event

An Important Update Regarding Events
In-person events are suspended until further notice. The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center is now also closed. Meanwhile, we urge everyone to comply with Gov. Cuomo’s executive order by maintaining a six-foot distance from others in public and washing hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.

The Office of Communications has many tools available to publicize campus events to the Vassar community, the general public, and the press, including press releases, posters, and invitations as well as listings in the VassarEvents e-newsletter.

Key to this process is you providing us notice and materials as early as possible.

Even if you book a room months ahead of your event, that’s when we want to start working with you. This is as true for a small lecture as for a major conference or event that a department or office is holding.

All text and images should be supplied in a single request. Please avoid sending details in repeated requests.
