Media Strategies for Faculty


"Often, when academics are not involved in [media] conversations, people rely on short-term generalizations to explain the world."

"I have my effectiveness in speaking to diverse audiences, whether it’s to three hundred executives or two thousand teachers, going out and telling them something about the global economy and its implications."

This semester the Communications and Marketing Division in partnership with the Office of the Provost sponsored a pilot workshop series, “Experts Guiding Experts: Navigating Today’s Media,” to provide select faculty with information on communications strategies they can employ to raise awareness of their scholarship and research with all audiences and to increase visibility of their scholarship and research through new and existing media. For information about future workshops, please contact Nancy Seideman at nseidem@emory.edu.
