MEDIA TRAINING AND PREP
Feel free to let us know if you’ve been contacted by the media as part of your job at the university. You may refer journalists directly to our office. We are happy to work with you on the best way to handle media queries. Not only that, we can track results of your contact with the media, such as newspaper and magazine clippings. Always feel free to email Molly Blancett, should you have any questions.
Media Relations staffers can help you publicize your research (or event, book publication, award, appointment, grant receipt, student achievement, etc.) in several ways. We can counsel you on strategies and tactics that best suit your needs. Depending on your situation, we might:
- Work to obtain media coverage through what you, along with the professionals in our office, deem the best option. It could be a piece in The Conversation.
- Write stories for internal publications such as Around the O or Inside Oregon. We also can assist you in working to place your story in other campus publications.
- Obtain images to illustrate your story.
