The Research University and the Public: Perception vs. Reality

Please plan to join us on October 24 for a very special presentation from Pedro Ribeiro and Ken Goldstein of the Association of American Universities. They’ll be discussing the work AAU is doing around perceptions of America’s top research institutions and presenting the latest research findings on the subject. Their remarks will be followed by a q&a. It should be a thought-provoking conversation about a topic of critical importance for U-M communicators. Don’t miss it!

What is Communicators’ Forum?

Working as a communicator at a large, decentralized institution can be extremely exciting and exasperating at the same time. There are a lot of amazing things happening here but it’s hard to know where to begin sometimes. How are other U-M departments recruiting students? How are colleges using social media to reach their audiences? What are the best ways to share research findings with the media?


Communicators’ Forum was created to provide information and resources for marketing and communications professionals at the University of Michigan — to provide a regular forum for communicators to actually communicate with each other! We host special sessions throughout the year where we discuss the latest topics and best practices at U-M and in the field. These gatherings are also a great opportunity to share ideas, network and collaborate with colleagues from across campus.

We also offer six Sub-Groups that meet to cover specific areas of interest:
