Media Relations

Faculty Resources

As a San Diego State University faculty member and an expert in your field, you often need to communicate your expertise and research achievements to external audiences. SDSU Media Relations can help by preparing you for interviews, reviewing your op-eds, connecting you with media and amplifying your expertise through social channels.

 

Media Training

Whether you’ve never worked with the media before or are a hardened media pro, we’re here to help prepare you for print and broadcast interviews. We offer individual or small group training sessions.

Op-ed Assistance

The SDSU media relations team can help shape and pitch your written commentary to the appropriate publications.

Social Media Consulting

Social media can be the perfect vehicle to optimize your message and reach more people by sharing and creating content of your own. The SDSU NewsCenter team can offer guidance regarding the specific social platforms that might best fit your needs and discuss the ways you can amplify your message via those platforms. We’re actively promoting SDSU’s experts on social media ourselves. Follow us on our Instagram and Twitter accounts!

Event Publicity

To promote your on-campus event, simply gather finalized details (event title, date, time, location, admission cost, contact information, etc.) and submit to the SDSU Events Calendar at least six to eight weeks before the event.

We also encourage you to list the event on the following local websites:
KPBS Community Events Calendar
San Diego Union-Tribune Events Calendar
San Diego Magazine Events Calendar
San Diego City Beat
Patch.com Events
