Sharing and marketing your research
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.
- Helps draft press releases on faculty research.
College of arts and sciences news
CAS News is a compilation of faculty news (articles, books, interviews, awards, etc.) that is sent out under News from Arts and Sciences twice during the semester. Please note that as "the News from Arts and Sciences tends to get lengthy, brevity would be much appreciated when it comes to your announcements." Please email your news to Lisa Locsin in the CAS Dean's Office.
CRASE: faculty research news
The Center for Research, Artistic and Scholarly Excellence (CRASE) assists faculty in sharing "recent or upcoming community events, public scholarship, media appearances, publications, grants, awards, and prizes."
CRASE: Academic Social Media for Faculty
CRASE staff will come to your office to help you set up or improve your academic social media profiles for ORCID, Google Scholar, ResearchGate, and Academia.edu.

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.
