About Pittwire

Pittwire is the University of Pittsburgh’s official source for the inspiring and important stories about Pitt, aimed at a broad public audience.

News stories are organized into categories highlighting the key people and strategic goals of Pitt—innovation and research, campus, students, alumni, giving, faculty and teaching, staff, and diversity and community.

Pittwire’s audience not only includes the University community of students, faculty, staff, partners and friends, but also the public and the media.

Media members are invited to repurpose Pittwire stories, photos, videos and graphics for their own outlets and can get more information from the media contact listed at the bottom of each article. (Stories on Pittwire that have been reprinted from other outlets, including Pitt Magazine and Pitt Med, need additional permissions for outside media use and a contact is listed at the end of each article for those as well.)


Anyone may subscribe to the free service.
