About Public Affairs and Media Relations

SFU’s Public Affairs and Media Relations office brokers news and information about the university to media and the general public. We produce various publications and provide a range of communications services to faculty and staff.   

Media Relations

  • Media Training Workshops: training sessions aimed to help faculty and senior administrators communicate more effectively with the media.
