The Office of Media Relations is responsible for:

  • Management of the University’s image and organizing/supporting media events;
  • Internal communications, such as the Events Calendar and Communications Bulletin.           

The Office serves to help you:

  • Share your major achievements (research, special projects, honours, grants, awards) with the University community and external audiences;
  • Prepare for media interviews on issues relating to your area of study;
  • Respond to issues relating to communications and media relations.

Share your success 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 Communications 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 endorsements before emailing it to mediarelations@lakeheadu.ca.
