For 125 years, DePaul faculty and staff have been elevating public discourse on issues that matter to our students and society. Recently, Shailja Sharma from the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences wrote for the
Chicago Tribune about the border crisis, Geoff Smith from the Institute for Housing Studies spoke on gentrification with
WBEZ, and Joseph Ferrari from the College of Science and Health described task paralysis in
The New York Times. More than ever in today’s complex media landscape, DePaul experts are sought after as trusted sources.
A special social media campaign from University Marketing and Communications offers a fresh way to promote these DePaul Newsmakers. Timed with
anniversary celebrations during the week of 1/25, the DePaul News social media accounts will spotlight some of the top opinion writing and insights from DePaul faculty and staff with images and graphics. DePaul Newsmakers are those who take extra time and care to shape their academic expertise for a general audience, a public service that takes time and talent to do well.
Many of the recently published op-eds, including one from Samantha Close in
Newsweek, are from OpEd Project Public Voices Fellows. The current cohort is hard at work on their writing and publishing, and more details about their work will run later this week in Newsline. Links to these op-eds are also available on the
College of Communication’s website.
To view and share the DePaul Newsmakers posts, please follow and share on
Instagram. While not every media mention will be able to be featured in this campaign, UMC will continue to update
DePaul in the News to share a wider variety of media mentions.
