UCLA Ed&IS Communications

Sharing research, ideas and expertise with educators, the press, policymakers and the public.

The UCLA Ed&IS Office of Communications is responsible for providing strategic communications support for the school, our faculty and research centers.

Our Media Relations team which is housed in the Sudikoff Public Forum, works with local, regional, national and international print and digital news media to tell the story of our work.

    If you’re looking for an expert to comment on issues involving education, educational public policy, information, information studies policy or any number of areas of expertise of our faculty, please contact John McDonald, Director, Sudikoff Institute Public Forum.
    When your research gets published in a journal or book, or you are nearing completion of work that is likely to generate coverage by outside media, please contact John McDonald.
