Outreach planning and communications strategy
Talk with us first! We can help with outreach and publicity essentials, such as targeting your audience, refining your group's identity, honing your content strategy, choosing the best channels (from brochures to video to websites to social media) and other possibilities.

Contact Shilo Hall (ext. 8603) to get started.

Media relations
When the phone rings and a reporter or producer is on the line, a best practice is to ask the caller what their deadline is and assure them that someone will get back to them. Then call us for assistance.

We also like to hear about upcoming research, publications, events, or projects that might be of interest to the media—the sooner the better!

Contact David Hosansky (ext. 8611).
