Share your news with us!

Share with us your achievements and success stories, as well as those of your students, so that we might publicize them via a media release, the Bulletin, social media, or other means.

If you have won an award or grant, are working on an interesting project, or have a story to tell, email it to your Department Chair and Faculty Dean for their endorsement before emailing it to mediarelations@lakeheadu.ca.
