Contact Media Relations

Dawn Zimmer

Coordinator, Media Relations 

If MCC is in the news, you can bet Media Relations had something to do with it. As the first point of contact to the media, we both respond to press inquiries and pitch our own news stories. We retain a deep knowledge of MCC programs, stay aware of all the latest achievements at the college, and work collaboratively with the staff, faculty, and students to promote MCC through print, broadcast, online, and social media.

The Media Relations and Communications groups often promote the same stories and events. And while Communications gets the word out via on-campus media and the MCC website, we focus on external audiences. Close collaboration between our groups ensures that everyone, both in the press and within the walls of MCC, is on the same page with the latest information.

You too can be a part of promoting MCC across the Valley and the rest of the country. All faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to submit story ideas that may be of interest to the community and beyond. We want to hear from you.

What We Do

Media Relations writes, posts, and distributes media information on a regular basis. Please direct questions or submit your story idea or media alert to Dawn Zimmer at 480-461-7892, dawn.zimmer@mesacc.edu.
