Engineering faculty member John Rogers sets a high bar for media outreach and responsiveness. He has an excellent sense of what is newsworthy and a gift for explaining science in layman’s terms. He works extensively with the News Bureau to prepare multimedia press packages when a major publication is imminent. Despite a very busy schedule, he responds quickly to all media requests – even those from small markets. Recently, he was willing on a two-hour notice to rearrange his schedule and drive down to the WDWS studios to complete an interview with NPR.
