We encourage faculty, staff, and students to contact the public relations team as quickly as possible when something related to CCA could capture the media's attention. Here are examples of what might generate media interest:
- A course that is unusual or timely or in which students are creating a project or proposing solutions for real-world problems.
- An unorthodox event for a course or on campus that would make an interesting photo feature or "soft" news story.
- A college-sponsored public event or symposium with high-profile guests and/or speakers.
- A student, faculty member, or recent alum, receives, or is nominated for, a prestigious award.
Send us your news even if you're uncertain it warrants media coverage. Our team will work with you to determine its media worthiness and follow up accordingly. We will also consider it for a CCA web feature or for a story in the college's magazine, Glance.
The news media regularly seeks faculty from a variety of disciplines to share their expertise in a given subject.
Offering your knowledge to a journalist enhances awareness of your program and credibility of the college. It also provides a valuable public service by contributing to the accuracy and quality of the news reporting about your field.
If you are interested in being a media expert please fill out this form, and we will contact you if an appropriate need arises.
