Media Relations

The Office of Marketing and Communications serves as the primary point of contact between media organizations and the college: responding to media inquiries, providing background information for reporters, arranging interviews with St. Olaf administrators and faculty, and working with faculty, staff, and students to share the stories of the St. Olaf community. The director of public relations serves as the principal media spokesperson for the college.

The director also monitors media services and trends in press coverage, looking for targets of opportunity for St. Olaf coverage or commentary by faculty, staff and administrators in local, regional and national media outlets. 

Media inquiries should be directed to Erin Golden, Director of Public Relations: 507-786-4444 or
