With professional development an integral part of a professor's career at Ohio University – Zanesville, the Public Relations Department can publicize your achievements, both internally to the university and externally to local media.
In addition to gaining the recognition of your colleagues, publicizing your professional activities (published articles, conference presentations, art show awards, etc.) helps to keep the university in the public's mind. At the touch of a button we can disseminate information to media in our seven county service area.
The PR Department can also provide support to special events, like International Day or the Comedy Class Stand-Up Final, or write stories about exceptional students, like those who win awards or honors. Such items can often generate free publicity, and occasionally opportunities are available for paid advertising of events.
Feel free to submit any or all promotion ideas to the PR department. Please remember, however, that time constraints may prevent all ideas from being acted upon.
Given the media in the areas we serve, submitting any publicity information to the PR Department two weeks in advance of an event will provide the greatest reach of publicity.
