Staff Report

Is something happening on Grounds that you think is newsworthy? University News Services provides information to the media on a range of U.Va. activities, from breaking news to cutting-edge research.

News information officers work one-on-one with faculty, staff and students to promote news and feature coverage of significant initiatives and achievements.

Two information sources that the News Services maintains online are Top News, a listing of current press releases and news about the University, with a searchable index of past press releases back to August 1993 and Headlines about UVA, a daily compilation of articles appearing in the media about the University, higher education issues and trends. Headline News is also distributed daily via e-mail; to have it sent to you, send a request to headlinenews@virginia.edu.

Inside UVA also is part of the News Services office, and the news officers coordinate efforts with our staff to help inform the University community.

The U.Va. Events Calendar on the Web, also maintained by News Services, is a comprehensive, searchable listing of public events at the University: lectures, exhibitions, speakers, conferences, plays, sports and more. Calendar items may be submitted by selecting the "submit events" button on the right side of the calendar home page.

The Office of Television News provides information and production support to members of the TV media and to University administrators, faculty, staff and students. The office spearheads University productions, manages U.Va.'s contracts with production companies, administers its video and film policies, maintains the University's video archives, and assists in making arrangements for use of U.Va.'s on-campus studio, state microwave network and C-band satellite uplink.
