Media Guide Update Form

U of G offers a Media Guide to reporters and news producers that lists U of G faculty who are interested in being interviewed about current issues. Reporters often use this Guide to search by keywords to find faculty members who can discuss particular topics.

New faculty members can use this form to create profiles for themselves in the Guide.

For current faculty, the Guide is always in need of updating. Please search for your name and ensure that your profile is up to date. If your position or areas of expertise have changed, please provide a new bio.

If you would like to be removed from the Guide, you may submit a request through this form as well.

Your request will be submitted to a member of the Communications team who will make the changes and advise you when they have been made.
