What is the Faculty Newsmakers Gala?

OHIO’s Faculty Newsmakers Gala, a premier campus event led by University Communications
and Marketing (UCM), focuses on one thing – celebrating OHIO’s faculty for the exemplary
work they do to elevate the University’s national and global profile via media coverage of their
research and subject matter expertise. Individuals who are recognized during this annual event
are forever known as “OHIO faculty newsmakers.” They are consummate faculty who,

included in media placements provided by Cision, a media monitoring platform utilized by UCM
