2022 in review:
Case Western Reserve University in the media

From a memorable midterm election to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and medical breakthroughs to the war in Ukraine, the expertise and insight of Case Western Reserve University’s faculty and staff were at the forefront of the stories making headlines nationally and internationally this year.

In what has become commonplace, our faculty members are often a journalist’s first call when trying to make sense of a news story. Perhaps more substantial, CWRU researchers’ important work often creates the headlines.

University Marketing and Communications works to raise the university’s national and international profile through positive coverage of its newsworthy people, places and accomplishments in respected online and print publications and specialty media. 

Look back at some of the highlights of Case Western Reserve in the media—keep in mind this is just a fraction of the media mentions—from 2022.
