We Would Love to Tell Your Story!

If you are a student, a faculty member, or someone on our staff, we encourage you to reach out with your story ideas and/or photos. Be sure to include the who, what, when, where, and why. If you have an external media outlet in mind, be sure to include that, too.

Academic and Scholarly Achievements

Hollins faculty and staff members: Our news section regularly celebrates and spotlight your achievements, be it in publishing, presenting at a conference, receiving outside recognition, or in other ways. We are always looking for more ways to highlight our incredible teaching faculty and committed staffers, so please keep us in mind and informed.

Student Accomplishments

Our students are incredible. Their achievements are a routine part of our news section, and we’re always looking for more opportunities to celebrate them as individuals or in their group efforts. Keep us in the loop so we can spread the news!

On-Campus Media Policy

The Hollins University campus is private property. Written permission from the Marketing and Communications Office is required before external filming or photography can take place anywhere on our campus, including interior or exterior spaces.  

Marketing and Communications is available to assist news media with shooting stills, video, and/or film on campus, including setting up locations, scheduling times, and gaining access to restricted areas once permission has been granted. Marketing and Communications can in many cases be able to provide “B-roll” still or video footage of campus scenes and locations upon request. For news outlets seeking permission to shoot on university property, or to request access to University B-roll, please contact Marketing and Communications at 540-362-7471 or
