Athletic Communications Mission: To promote University of North Georgia Athletics teams and the school’s athletics brand in a first-class and organized fashion and to become one of the premier presentations in both the Peach Belt Conference and the NCAA Division II markets.  Our office’s goal will be to provide quality, accurate and objective information pertaining to each intercollegiate sports program and event at North Georgia in order to generate understanding, promotion and support for the Nighthawks’ intercollegiate athletic department.

Institutional Athletics Logos & Wordmarks:  All groups, departments, individuals and companies are required to obtain approval before producing any products that use the University of North Georgia's registered name(s), trademarks and/or service marks. Approval is required regardless of use or method of distribution. The UNG logo is licensed by LRG - Licensing Resource Group.  Additional versions including sport-specific logos and institutional marks are available by request from the Athletic Communications office.

Game Day Operations
& Event Management: The Athletic Communications office is responsible for the management and staffing for all home athletic contests for the department's 12 intercollegiate sports.  Game notes and statistical box scores will be made available at every men’s & women’s soccer, men’s & women’s basketball, baseball and softball contest. 

Home Game Coverage: Nighthawk Vision will feature an interactive interface combining live in-game statistics, live video stream and live audio stream (when applicable) combined into one viewing location.  The feature will be available for all home soccer, basketball, baseball and softball contests.  Basketball games will feature a three-camera production with audio overlay courtesy of the UNG Nighthawk Radio Network. Soccer, basketball and baseball games will offer a live video stream coupled with the live statistics interface of logos, scoreboards, graphics and sortable statistics. 

Downloadable Rosters: Downloadable Microsoft word rosters with pronunciation guides and StatCrew roster files are available for opposing Sports Information Directors on the bottom of each UNG athletic team's respective roster page.  Additional file requests for hosting UNG teams can be sent to the Athletic Communications office.

Media Interviews: All interviews with University of North Georgia student-athletes and coaches should be set up through the Athletic Communications office. The best time to arrange interviews with student-athletes is in the afternoons on weekdays (when not interfering with student-athletes' class schedules).  Interviews with coaches will be set up based on their individual schedules and will be facilitated through contacting Lee Glenn by email (lee.glenn@ung.edu) or by phone (706-867-3250). Interviews at the conclusion of all home athletic events will be held after a brief cooling off period.
