Whether you need a response on a breaking story, a scientist to interview as an expert source or are looking for story ideas, our team is available to assist members of the media. Contact one of our campus public information officers (PIO) to get started.

Guidelines for shooting photos or videos on campus:
Commercial production companies shooting films, television programs or advertisements: We can help you too. Contact us to get started.
No formal agreements or interaction with the university are required. People can film/photograph and share at will, as long as it's not prohibited by law. (For example, law enforcement might prevent photos of a crime scene.)
No written agreements are required, other than in some special circumstances, such as remote field sites. Staff and faculty members should inform the UAF PIO and/or unit PIO in advance that media will be covering something in their area. If advance notice isn't possible, an after-the-fact email is good too. University employees or students who want assistance working with the media can contact their unit's PIO or UAF public affairs.
