There are several campus communication channels that can help get the word out about your research. It’s always a good idea to start with your home department and to reach out to your college’s communication staff.

UC Davis Strategic Communications works with researchers from all departments on the UC Davis campus. Strategic Communications issues news releases, maintains the UC Davis home page and associated web pages, manages official campus social media channels and produces Dateline, the faculty/staff email newsletter, among other things. You can find out who covers which discipline here.

The Office of Public Affairs for UC Davis Health provides similar support for researchers on the Health campus in Sacramento. A list of public information officers for the Health campus can be found here.

The Office of Research also promotes research and innovation from across both campuses, with an emphasis on organized research units, special research programs, core labs, and programs affiliated with the Office of Research. Contacts for the marketing and communications unit within the Office of Research can be found here.
