The ISU Office of Strategic Relations and Communications shared that recent media coverage featuring CALS experts is “massive” compared to past reports. The top three faculty, all in the Department of Economics, cited in recent publications and their media reach (based on circulation calculated over the last 14 days) are: Dermot Hayes – reach of 871.3 million, Chad Hart – reach of 655.75 million, Lee Schulz – reach of 211 million. The following two stories grabbed the majority of the attention:
- Virus Closes Some Meat Plants, Raising Fears of Shortages (Associated Press) featuring Dermot and Chad ran in over 200 different publications (New York Times, Washington Post, U.S. News and World Report, etc.).
- From caviar to apple juice, coronavirus is changing the way the world feeds itself (Los Angeles Times link) featuring Lee is one of multiple examples of supply chain coverage.
