Additional Press Resources

Office of Strategic Communications (OCM)

The Office of Strategic Communications (OCM) can connect members of the media with Sean Mallon and provide news and information, photography, and video about the Mason Summer Entrepreneurship Accelerator program and the network of MIX spaces.

Media Access to Campus

Media representatives are asked to arrange interviews and photo sessions with faculty, staff, or students in advance through OCM. A member of our staff will accompany reporters, video crews, and photographers on campus to ensure confidentiality, privacy, and appropriate sensitivity to students and families.

News media must seek permission from OCM to videotape or broadcast live from campus, and they must park in designated areas. Permission will usually be granted for exterior work, as long as it does not interfere with university operations. At times, Mason will limit television broadcasting to specific locations. Unless you are otherwise notified, a Mason representative must be present.

In all circumstances, news media representatives must seek permission to enter or shoot in interior spaces, including laboratories, classrooms, or administrative buildings. Permission is usually granted if shooting doesn’t interfere with university activities, impinge on privacy, or jeopardize the safety of university personnel, visitors or facilities.

Visitor Information (Press)
