News Service Office

Our News Service team is charged with getting the word out about the people, discoveries, happenings and achievements that make the University of Guelph a great place to learn and work.

We write and pitch news releases and stories to the media, including everything from the latest U of G research findings to faculty, staff and student honours and initiatives to major University announcements.  

We also promote faculty making headlines in Canada and around the world in their fields of study via our Experts Guide and In the News postings.

U of G community members: If you think your research findings, accomplishments or events are of interest to the general public, please contact us via email.
