Faculty and Staff

We're your communication resource in the College of Agriculture. Within our department we have many resources: the Multimedia group, the Publishing group, the News and Public Affairs group, the Exhibit Center, and the Media Distribution Center.

The Multimedia group helps you produce videos, CD-ROMs, Web sites and kiosks. The group shoots, writes, edits, and produces video animations. The Exhibit Center creates two- and three-dimensional displays and exhibits, incorporating graphic elements and computer and video technology.

The Publishing group develops over 800 items annually, ranging from publications to promotional materials, from Web sites to CD-ROMs, from books to posters, and from flyers to postcards. We offer communication consulting in everything from audience identification and crafting your message, to distribution and pricing advice.

The News unit handles media relations for the College of Agriculture and the Purdue Cooperative Extension Service. Our goal is to promote knowledge about the College of Agriculture, research and Extension. We write news releases and produce two publications: Connections and AgriCultures. We handle media inquiries and public affairs issues. We also consult with faculty and staff regarding media and risk communication.

In addition, we also manage Ag Answers, a production ag news service where farmers can get the latest information from experts at Purdue and Ohio State University.
