Media relations training

Faculty, staff and students are often asked to conduct interviews with local, provincial, national and even international media outlets. Our Communications team, staffed by several former journalists, can help you prepare and can provide advice so you can share your story effectively with a broad audience. We can also offer training for students who may never have had any media relations experience.
