Policy Statement

Among the visitors invited to the University are some in whom the public press may have special interest. The general purpose of a press conference for a speaker or other visitor is to minimize the interference of the press representatives with the primary purpose of the visit. A press conference for noteworthy and interesting visitors will also generate favorable exposure for SUNY Brockport within the region.

Policy Procedures

When there is reason to believe that press interest exists or will develop, the University member responsible for inviting the visitor should consult with the Office of University Communications about arranging a press conference or a series of press interviews. The visitor or an agent should be contacted in advance by the University member responsible for the initial invitation, informed that the University is considering a press conference, and given an opportunity to indicate any preference regarding such an arrangement. If the visitor objects, no press interviews will be scheduled.
