Submit a Story Idea

This form allows you to share the details of upcoming events or positive, newsworthy stories with the IMC news staff. Submitting the report sends an e-mail directly to Alex Hummel, associate director, news and public information.

Integrated Marketing and Communications is eager to hear your story ideas. We will pitch stories that are most likely to generate media interest. Some examples of stories that are likely to succeed include:

  • Stories with national scope or impact. These stories illustrate a national trend in higher education; highlight a unique aspect of the UW Oshkosh faculty, students or staff; or have potential to interest or impact a general and legal audience alike.
  • Stories that are unique/human interest. These stories exemplify the unique or human face of UW Oshkosh faculty, students or staff.
  • Compelling stories with news/feature undertones. These stories most often appeal to a general audience and involve the activities of a person. They often have a direct correlation to an issue in the news or a national/local trend. Story ideas can be compelling, whimsical or present an issue that is on the brink of innovation.
