Research communication resources

Indiana University offers a variety of programs, trainings, events, and resources to support faculty in developing their research communication skills.

Effective engagement with public audiences is crucial to attracting further funding, creating greater support for university work, and advancing awareness of the university’s strengths and accomplishments.

Resources at IU for improving skills

Get involved

Get noticed

  • If you have a groundbreaking publication coming out or a notable performance or exhibition to announce, notify your school or department’s communication staff, the IU news and media team, and/or the IU executive director for research communication. These professionals can help you decide the best way to share your achievement with appropriate audiences.
  • Share your expertise as part of the IU Experts Database. The database provides information on IU faculty to the media and the public who are seeking experts related to breaking news, interesting trends, or novel research.
