Latest news, discoveries & breakthroughs

The Office of Marketing and Communications services CALS faculty, staff and students by providing news and feature coverage of research, teaching and extension and outreach news. We write and edit a wide variety of content for the Cornell Chronicle as well as our college-wide publications, websites and social media platforms.

We coordinate with the Cornell Office of Media Relations to distribute news releases and tip sheets for reporters and other entities. We also assist journalists who request information or interviews of CALS' personnel.

If you are a member of the media seeking to contact a CALS researcher, staff member or student, please contact Samara Sit, associate dean, Office of Marketing and Communications.
