Media relations

The Community Relations Department is the official liaison for all contacts with the news media. All media inquiries and requests to photograph on college grounds should be directed to Community Relations staff. We look forward to working with local media outlets to provide accurate and timely information about Yakima Valley ​College. YVC Media Relations Procedures have been set been by the Board of Trustees are available by request from Community Relations.
