i-Primer on Media Relations:
Sharing Newsworthy Research with the News Media

In collaboration with the Office of Public Affairs, we host this highly engaging, hands-on workshop for assistant professors.

Our campus news media specialists will help faculty gain practical skills on how to work with campus communicators and prepare for an interview. Faculty will have a chance to practice their interviewing skills on camera and learn from each other on how best to get their message across to a broad audience. Two sessions are offered on Reading Day for the Fall 2017 semester.
