Current threats to traditional funding streams, growing competition for available funds, and increased attacks on science and higher education make communicating the value of university research, scholarship and creative works more important than ever.

In this workshop, university faculty and staff with expertise in successfully communicating the impact of university discoveries and creations will help you develop communication strategies and tactics to get your work the visibility it deserves. You’ll learn information, techniques, tips and resources that will help ensure that your work is framed optimally, shared with the right audiences and creates the impact you seek.

You’ll also get time to develop communication approaches you can apply to a current project and use as a template for future projects.

The workshop will feature:

  • Kris Karnauskas, Fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and Associate Professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC)
  • Monique LeBourgeois, Associate Professor in the Department of Integrative Physiology
  • Lisa Marshall, Science Writer, Strategic Relations and Communications
  • Andrew Sorensen, Media Relations Manager, Strategic Relations and Communications
  • Chris Yankee, Director of Research Communications, Research & Innovation Office

Following the presentation, there will be time for Q&A, and time for you to network with other faculty and staff. Lunch is provided.
