Shannon Tirone Welcome

Welcome to the Division of University Relations! My name is Shannon Tirone and I am the Associate Vice President for University Relations. In my role at Youngstown State University, I have the privilege of working with dedicated employees in our Police Department, Offices of Alumni Engagement, Marketing and Communications, and University Events, and our public radio station, WYSU. These individuals are not only driven to enhance and support the YSU community, but the entire community as a whole, with their insight, experience and commitment.

With so many opportunities to engage our alumni and community in the work that we do, University Relations helps to create and foster relationships beyond campus. For help with: coordinating or hosting an event, contact University Events; connecting with YSU Alumni around the world, contact Alumni Engagement; creating public relations materials for your department, contact Marketing and Communications; keeping up to date with the latest news, tune in to WYSU; addressing any safety concerns or needs, contact University Police. Our division may have a broad scope, but we have one mission in common: service.

Thanks to the work that we do and the community that we serve, all of us at University Relations are “Y and proud”.
