Media relations advising & training
Helping your story reach its perfect audience
Maybe you have a newsworthy research project the world should know about or a high profile event to publicize; or if you offer a particular expertise in a field, we can help you “spread the word.” Or maybe a reporter is on the phone and wants to do a story with you and you're not sure how to proceed.

Speak comfortably and confidently to the media
Is dealing with a reporter worth your time? The quick answer is: yes. Media relations lays the groundwork for public interest in your work. Even the smallest news appearances, repeated over time, builds public recognition, credibility and reputation for your work.
A media interview is an opportunity to tell your story. It is an opportunity to profit from, not an ordeal to be feared – provided you are aware of and become comfortable with a few simple concepts and practical facts about the news media.
We offer media training to groups or individuals throughout the campus. There's no charge for the service – just your time.
Through our media training, you will:
- Take the opportunity to practice on-camera exercises
- Learn about effective messaging
- Find out how the media world works and what their expectations are (not to mention the importance of checking your hair and teeth before going on camera!).
- Become more comfortable and confident with the process so when the media comes calling it's all about the opportunity, not the anxiousness.
