Dean’s Podcast – Episode 6

An interview with Noreen Golfman, dean of graduate studies at Memorial University



Welcome to the Dean’s Podcast – the podcast about issues shaping graduate studies in Canada.

In this episode, host Carolyn Watters, Dalhousie University dean of graduate studies, and 2009 Canadian Association of Graduate Studies president, talks to Noreen Golfman, dean of graduate studies at Memorial University. Memorial recently launched a graduate recruitment campaign integrating traditional billboard and subway advertising with cutting edge social media tactics.

Dr. Golfman gives her insights into how social media is becoming an essential part of any graduate or undergraduate recruitment strategy and offers a peek behind the curtain on this campaign which netted some 38,000 visitors in its first 24 hours. (Running time: 24:43 mins).
