News, Events, and Social Media

We want to promote your success! We write news releases and feature stories to promote the successes of our faculty in their research, and students in their studies and extracurriculars. Submit your news or events by email for consideration. We have news on our website, and pages on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

For external award and grant recognition, fill out the award information form.


Please give as much notice as possible for news releases. For instance, please let us know as soon as a journal article is accepted. We will not post the news release until we have permission from all parties involved.

For broader-scale releases, we can connect faculty with Purdue Strategic Communications or College of Engineering Communications. We can also set up training for media interviews with Purdue Strategic Communications.


Student clubs: Tag @purdueaeroastro on Instagram and we will add your callouts, events, achievements and more to our stories.
