Faculty and staff asked to nominate an expert

September 30, 2003

The Office of Public Relations and Marketing is updating its electronic and printed versions of the University's Experts List," a directory used by local, state and national media to tap faculty and staff for comments and insight on news topics.

Few people are comfortable with calling themselves experts, however, so the PR office is asking faculty members to nominate a colleague (or several) for inclusion in the list.

The Office of Public Relations and Marketing is updating its electronic and printed versions of the University's “Experts List," a directory used by local, state and national media to tap faculty and staff for comments and insight on news topics.

Few people are comfortable with calling themselves experts, however, so the PR office is asking faculty members to nominate a colleague (or several) for inclusion in the list.

Nominees can include those who are experts in a specific disciplineor in non-work-related areas such fly fishing, extreme snow-skiing, the Delta blues, Irish folklore, needlepoint, finding the best travel deals online and so on.

Faculty and staff who haven't yet nominated a colleague should send his or her name and area(s) of expertise to Rebecca Mackey, communication specialist in the Office of Public Relations and Marketing. All nominees will be asked for their permission before they're included in the directory.

Also, faculty members willing to serve as a media resource on specific topics should send their name, title, phone number, e-mail address and areas of expertise to Mackey by Nov. 1.
