News and Media

What is USF Sarasota-Manatee? What sets it apart from other higher education institutions? How can one learn more about USFSM? These are some of the messages that the Communications and Marketing staff at USF Sarasota-Manatee addresses on a daily basis.

The USF Sarasota-Manatee Communications and Marketing staff is responsible for maintaining the public perception of the University. This includes managing all outside media requests for interviews, information and official university statements. If you have a media inquiry, or would like to request an interview with someone from within the university, please contact Shawn Ahearn.

USFSM also strives to be the ultimate hub for any news related to our faculty, staff, students, alumni or the university itself. If you would like more information on a particular story that you have seen on or USFSM’s social media platforms, please contact Shawn Ahearn, Director of Communications and Marketing.
