College Relations

Media Relations

College Relations serves as Green River College's communication link to local, regional and national media. Our staff is here to help faculty and staff work with the media to publicize their work, as well as to link media members in search of experts on various topics. Faculty and staff are encouraged to work in coordination with College Relations when contacted by the media or to develop publicity plans to highlight programs, service and teaching.

Crisis & Emergency Communications

Rapid, accurate and purposeful communication of key information and messages is essential. Precise communication minimizes the potential for any inaccurate, negative, or detrimental information being disseminated to all stakeholders. During a crisis or emergency situation, we work with Campus Safety and the Emergency Opertations Center to share emergency messaging to staff and students using serveral tools, including: text messaging, emails, social media posts and alert box across pages.
