The Voices of Faculty Are Important. Be a part of The Conversation.


MSU faculty are encouraged to attend upcoming information sessions Oct. 23 and 24 on The Conversation, an independent source for informed commentary and news analysis, written by academic researchers and edited for the general public. In the first year of MSU’s partnership with The Conversation, articles by MSU authors have been read more than 2 million times and been published by media outlets around the world.

The Conversation aims to promote better understanding of the latest research news and breakthroughs, covering social sciences and the humanities, science and technology, health, education, and the environment. This outlet offers commentary on the big issues of the day, current affairs and complex issues. See what some of our researchers have to say about their experience with The Conversation here:

Through The Conversation, some of the news outlets publishing MSU faculty articles are:

• The Washington Post • The Guardian • Time

• CNN • Smithsonian Magazine • Univision
