News and Publicity


One of the major functions of the college’s marketing and communications team is to help promote its people and programs. We share news about faculty research, publications and creative endeavors to wide audiences. We also help publicize events on campus.

News and Media Relations

We work closely with the university’s media relations team to promote news through print, broadcast and online media outlets. We help our media relations team identify compelling news and research stories, connect reporters with faculty experts, and help members of the media access photos and press releases.

Faculty and staff, please contact us and the university’s media relations team if:

  • You have been contacted by a member of the media to serve as a source for a story
  • You have a story idea you think news media would be interested in covering
  • You have an achievement (research, scholarship, creative endeavor, career) you think the university should publicize
  • Your students have an achievement you think the university should publicize

The Daily

If you have news or event information you would like to share with the university community, consider submitting it to The Daily, CWRU’s weekday email newsletter. Please refer to their editorial guidelines. Include all required information, including contact name, email and phone number and the full text of your event or announcement. Send your information to or use this online form.


Newsletters are a good way to stay connected with alumni and friends. Department newsletters allow you to share news and information about happenings on campus, including faculty research and publications, student awards and accomplishments and alumni updates. If you are looking to share news with alumni audiences, be sure to work with the college’s development team who can access the university’s alumni database on your behalf. Contact Jennifer Schad at or 216.368.0096.
