Experts Guide :: How to Create a Profile
University Affairs invites faculty, staff and administrators who work on the Sonoma State University campus to join the Experts Guide.
The SSU Experts Guide is a unique directory of experts that serves as a resource for journalists seeking specialists to comment on issues, individuals and organizations looking for speakers, and academics to identify opportunities for research collaboration.
Those who join the Experts Guide should be skilled in their field/discipline. Those who choose to be media sources must be well versed enough in a subject or discipline to be quoted by the media; speakers should be comfortable with delivering a speech to an off-campus audience on their subject or discipline; and collaborative researchers are interested in working with other faculty/staff on research or special projects.
Once you are listed in the Experts Guide, a number of audiences may contact you, including members of the media. Please note comments or opinions given to the media should not be presented as the opinion of the University as a whole unless you are a designated spokesperson.
University Affairs encourages experts to alert Media Relations Coordinator Jean Wasp when a media representative interviews them in order for her to obtain copies of the article or program. She can be contacted at (707) 664-2057 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
