Members of the News Media

We make every attempt to assist with news media requests and cooperate with reporters and editors in a timely manner.

Please direct all requests to the Vice President for Marketing and Communications, Valerie Gliem at (727) 864-8408 for assistance with the following:

  • Identifying and contacting a student, faculty, staff or community member to comment on a particular issue or topic;
  • Visiting campus to interview a member of the Eckerd community;
  • Visiting campus to record a public or private event;
  • Visiting campus for b-roll footage to accompany a news story.

Eckerd College is responsible for providing the members of its community a safe and carefree environment to live, learn and work. As a result, we require that representatives from the news media obtain written or verbal permission to be on our campus for any reason. Eckerd's campus is private property. The College retains the right to restrict or deny access at any time.

Ad Sales Associates

The Integrated Marketing and Communications Council is a group of individuals made up from a cross-section of College departments. The Council's purpose is to assist the Office of Marketing and Communications in ensuring consistent, coordinated, effective messaging and design that will reinforce Eckerd's differentiators and name recognition, and promote the overall academic excellence of the College.

One of the Council's responsibilities is to review advertising opportunities with an eye toward possible advantages to individual programs and the entire College. For consideration by the Integrated Marketing and Communications Council, please e-mail your advertising opportunity and materials at least four weeks in advance of the space reservation deadline.
