Healthy Clark Dashboard and Healthy Clark COVID Plan

Clark University’s Media Relations team works to promote the University’s programs and people. We cultivate and nurture relationships with regional, national, and international media outlets to share the accomplishments, insights, and scholarship of the Clark community.

We can help faculty publicize research, honors, and achievements, including books or articles published in esteemed journals. We also work with members of the Clark community to author, edit, and place op-eds, and publicize campus events.

Media Resources

How We Help the Media

Media Relations staff will be available to help you with the following and more:

  • Locate and access interview sources such as Faculty Experts
  • Arrange use of appropriate spaces, lighting, backdrops, props, etc.
  • Find clear directions and help with parking arrangements
  • Collect background information or official comment needed for accurate and balanced reporting.

The safety, privacy, and unimpeded academic and extracurricular pursuits of Clark students, faculty, and staff are priorities. Residence halls and classrooms/labs are off-limits without prior arrangement through the Media Relations office. Commercial production companies and non-news related media are required to contact University Marketing and Communications before conducting business on campus.

In the event of an emergency, the University administration and/or law enforcement or fire personnel can close the campus or areas on campus to the public, including members of media. In such a crisis, staff will work to arrange off-site or alternative ways to provide media outlets with accurate and up-to-date information.

FOR FACULTY

Share Your Expertise

Serving as a resource for the media helps raise your profile and gives you an opportunity to plug your scholarship and/or funded research. Reporters are always looking for experts on a variety of topics to interview for their stories, and Clark’s Media Relations team is eager to promote the wide-ranging expertise of our faculty. We have tip sheets and best practices, so don’t be shy. Contact us today if you’re curious. We’d love for you to be part of the national conversation.

Clark’s Media Relations team has enjoyed great success publicizing Clark faculty news and our professors’ analysis of breaking news to high-profile journalists.

Our team welcomes the opportunity to connect Clark experts to reporters who write for national and international media outlets on a variety of topics ranging from the effects of climate change on the Earth’s oceans to emerging adults’ views on love and marriage. If you expect news to break on a topic you follow, send us a brief (three to four sentences) analysis of the situation, a prediction about how events might unfold, or a pithy/controversial comment for us to share with the media as soon as possible after news breaks, and we’ll “pitch” your comment to interested journalists and encourage interviews.

Because we are a small shop, we encourage you to contact us quickly and provide as much lead time as possible if you are interested in serving as a resource for the media; contact by email is usually best. The sooner you let us know about your forthcoming book or journal article, conference participation or presentation to lawmakers, the more prepared we will be to publicize your news in real-time.

Thinking about setting up a blog or interested in learning more about social media? Contact us.

Faculty who share their expertise with the press elevate the University’s reputation and help promote Clark to prospective students and their families worldwide. Alumni and friends of the University also report an added sense of pride when they see Clark faculty quoted in newspapers and in online outlets, or hear a Clark expert interviewed on the radio or on TV.

The Media Relations staff is constantly reviewing queries from daily from hundreds of reporters looking to connect with faculty experts (typically on a tight deadline). If we discover a media opportunity that might be a match for your expertise, we present you with the opportunity to offer a comment, and at the same time try to be mindful of your busy schedule and classroom commitments.
