Faculty support is a high priority that cuts across every area of our department. Whether you’d like to promote your research, start a blog on your academic interests, manage your public image, make yourself available to comment on current events in the media or publicize new publications and awards, we’ll do everything we can to help.
The media relations team is the Kellogg School’s ambassador to reporters from top-tier international media outlets. Each day, the team informs the media of the latest Kellogg faculty research and professors’ perspectives on current news and trends. The team also responds to regular inquiries from reporters and helps them identify expert sources for their stories.
We provide the following services:
- PR plan development
- Media training and mock interviews
- Reporter/publication briefings
- On-site interview support
- Press releases
… and more!
The editorial group provides coverage and publicity for faculty books, awards, research and prominent guest speakers. Our writers and editors are responsible for the content of Kellogg World magazine and the stories on the Kellogg website, in which faculty members are often profiled and featured as expert sources.
Faculty directory and web pages:
The MarComm Web group is the first line of support for the Faculty Directory, Academic Departments and Professional Programs, and Research Centers. If you need training or have edits, please contact Kellogg Web support. The team can also support your need for a personal site or blog (more information on blogging below).
A number of Kellogg faculty members share their expertise and comment on current events through blogs. Marketing and Communications is eager to support would-be bloggers. For professors considering a blog, count on us to help research other blogs/bloggers with similar topics, brainstorm blog names and themes, suggest initial topics and design the masthead and stylesheet for your blog.
The Office of the Dean approves blogs for inclusion in the faculty blogroll according to the following criteria:
- Author(s) are affiliated full-time with Kellogg or Northwestern
- Blog is intended to comment on author’s area of expertise. It is not merely a vehicle to promote a book or consulting services
- Blog must have an RSS feed
- Blog must not encounter any objection from the Office of the Dean, Marketing and Communications or the Associate Dean of Faculty Research
Finally, we’re eager to promote your blog through social media (e.g. @KelloggSchool on Twitter, the Kellogg School’s Facebook page) and can aid in blogger outreach if you seek collaborators and complements in the blogosphere.
