Office of Media Relations

Please contact the Office of Media Relations to become a faculty expert and to keep them posted on your research. The Office of Media Relations assists faculty in publicizing their work through the following activities:

  • Invites faculty members to join their roster of experts
  • Offers media training to prepare faculty for successful print, broadcast and on-line interviews
  • Works directly with reporters (locally, nationally, and internationally) to provide them with academic experts and story ideas.

Research Methodologies and Statistics

CARMA: Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis provides webcasts, a video library and discounts on short courses, on the topic of research methodologies for all subject disciplines as well as technical support for statistical software. CARMA can be used both as a tool for consultation and continuing education. The Gleeson Library - Geschke Center’s subscription to this service makes it available to faculty.

SPSS and other methodological software packages are available through Information Technology Services. Faculty may also apply to purchase such packages through the Faculty Development Fund.
