Strategic Communications

The Strategic Communications team provides news and information about university research, academic affairs, and student life. For the latest news from the university, visit Utah State Today and subscribe to get university news in your email inbox weekly.

Media Relations

The strategic communications team serves as the primary resource for the media, including for coordination of subject matter experts, photography recourses, B-roll, and facilities access, as well as for information during an emergency or crisis. 

Request Public Records

The Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA), Utah Code section 63G-2-101 et seq., is Utah's open records law and the state equivalent of the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Through GRAMA, the public may request access to certain records maintained by the university.

GRAMA requests are coordinated through the Office of Legal Affairs. Submit a records request.

Crisis Communications

USU sends important information about crimes on campus, threats to safety, and emergencies through Aggie Alerts. All alerts are sent through USU's campus alert system, which includes text to cell phones, email, and push alerts through the Aggie Safe App. Those who are not members of the university community may sign up for text alerts or download the app to receive the same alerts.
