Purpose: Trine University sports information office is dedicated to serving the student-athletes, coaching staff and administration of Trine University as well as the media covering Thunder Athletics. The sports information office strives to improve the student-athlete experience at Trine by promoting the Thunder in print, radio, television and internet media.

The sports information staff's role as a member of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association and National Collegiate Athletic Association is of utmost importance as timely, accurate reporting of results and statistics is crucial.
