Resources for Faculty

Contribute to public understanding of important issues by sharing your expertise and achievements with local, regional, national, or international news outlets.


Share your expertise

The first step is to ensure the media knows you're available. Adding your name to the UWinnipeg Experts Guide allows media to connect with you when they are reporting on subject matter you have expertise in. 

Being in the Experts Guide indicates a willingness to respond to media inquiries. Requests will likely come with short notice as reporters are often under tight deadline pressure. We recommend you return emails and calls promptly, but it's okay to ask for more time or information before agreeing to an interview. The university has communications experts who are happy to help you prepare, so don't hesitate to reach out for communications support.

Please inform us when you are contacted by media, or are being featured in news stories, so that we can monitor the output, direct relevant queries your way, and support you by promoting your story on our website and social media channels.

Share your story

Sharing stories related to your research or area of expertise in the media can help raise awareness and demonstrate thought leadership on an important issue, motivate your audience to take action, and help build UWinnipeg's reputation.

Whether you have a project you would like to pitch to the media, or need help preparing for media interviews, The University of Winnipeg has a team of communications professionals available to equip you with the media relations support you need to share your story

Still have questions?

If you have any questions, or if you are contacted by a reporter and are unable to respond yourself, redirect the inquiry to communications@uwinnipeg.ca.
