Speaker's Bureau/Expert Topics

 

 

 


The Speaker’s Bureau is a list of presenters on campus including the subjects of their programs.

The media can use this list to find sources for stories they are working on. Community groups can use the list to find interesting speakers. Feel free to contact the individuals directly, or you may contact the Public Relations Office to get started utilizing our expertise.


You may choose from the presenters below, scroll down to expert topics or contact the PR Office at 740.588.1565 and we'll try to connect you with the appropriate faculty, staff or administrator at the Zanesville campus who can comment. Or, we'll direct you to the University's expert coordinator in Communications and Marketing in Athens.
