Faculty Experts

 

Many academic and administrative units across the University have designated communications professionals to help identify faculty members and researchers with expertise to speak on matters of interest to the news media. These communications professionals can help arrange interviews, although film crews should note that the Office of Communications maintains campus filming policies and may be involved in such visits.

Members of the news media also may choose to take advantage of faculty pages on department websites that list areas of research and expertise. A listing of academic programs and departments is available online. If identifying a faculty member without assistance from a University communications professional, reporters interested in coming to campus for an interview should contact the Office of Communications for authorization. This may help ensure ready access and that the interview proceeds smoothly.
