Media Guidelines

General Guidelines

If you are a member of the media interested in interviewing, photographing, recording or taping any of the administrators, faculty, staff, students, events or facilities on Howard University campuses, e-mail your request to the media relations team in the Office of University Communications.

Please provide your name, organization, contact information, deadline, and a detailed description of the story you are working on, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Media on Campus

In order to ensure the privacy of our students, faculty, staff, and guests, we request that all media contact a member of the OUC prior to visiting the campus. As part of their jobs, our university police officers look for vehicles and people who are not authorized to be on campus. If we know you are coming, we can notify the necessary people and also provide you with the most convenient parking to maximize your time. In almost all cases, student/faculty interviews and other taping/photography are possible.   An escort is always necessary!


Howard faculty members are encouraged to respond to requests from the media regarding their research, scholarship, and/or professional expertise. However, you may find it helpful to contact the OUC for further background, current or more efficient contact information, and additional experts if your first choice is unavailable. Since our expert’s directory is constantly being updated, we may be able to refer you to an expert who might better serve your needs.

University Data or Policy

We want you to have the most complete and accurate information. So, if you are looking for university data or information on university policies and/or procedures you should call the OUC directly.

*Howard's communication team has built positive relationships with local and national reporters, editors and news producers. We have a strong history of sharing the expertise of our world-class faculty and highly trained staff.  Our team is available to help arrange visits to campus, interviews, and photo opportunities. We strive to make your interaction with Howard as efficient, well informed, and interesting as possible.
