Media and external communications team
This team plays a vital role conveying Griffith's strengths to a wide audience. As part of the University’s Marketing and Communication team, we source, curate and create remarkable newsworthy content that helps tell the Griffith Story. The Media and External Communications team holds primary responsibility for media relations and also provides risk management and advice on potential and current media issues to various internal stakeholders.
The team deals with media outlets and representatives every day, pitching news stories and distributing media releases, responding to requests for expert comment and academic expertise, and managing relevant breaking news. The team also maintains the Griffith News webpage, which showcases the latest news from the University as a whole. Team members are experienced media professionals and most are former journalists. They can also arrange media training for academics as required and provide resources to assist in preparing for interviews or other media opportunities.
All Griffith media releases and approaches to media outlets must be authorised by the Media and External Communications team.
If you receive a call from a media representative directly, please alert the team. We can offer advice on appropriate parking and security arrangements for media visits to campus. To maintain our brand and reputation it is important that visiting media are not left alone to take footage or interviews for purposes other than that approved.
