News Bureau

Sharing Illinois News and Expertise

The News Bureau’s mission is to generate and coordinate national, regional, state and local news coverage of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

The News Bureau seeks out faculty research and expertise that has news potential beyond the discipline, the campus and the local community. Most often, that means research with its own intrinsic news value, or expertise strongly related to events or issues in the news.


The News Bureau posts news releases and faculty member interviews to our website and distribute the content to select news media outlets. They also offer media training to help faculty members and other campus personnel feel more at ease and prepared for news media interviews.
