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,
regardless of their title or classification, currently teach at Ohio University and have been
included in media placements provided by Cision, a media monitoring platform utilized by UCM
to track University news.
How was I selected to attend the Gala?
All faculty members invited to the Faculty Newsmakers Gala were mentioned by at least one
media outlet during the 2017 calendar year.
