With the merger of UNC-Chapel Hill entities, IMS, MASC, and GEOL, leading to the creation of the EMES (Earth, Marine, and Environmental Sciences) department, it has come to the attention of IMS students and faculty that the IMS Communications position is being dissolved. With this, we are losing our current Communications Director, Kerry Irish. We cannot express how devastating this news is to us as a community. 

Kerry frequently coordinates science communication workshops, media interviews, and footage of our research activities, allowing us all to build our academic outreach portfolios and skill sets. This is not to mention the integral work Kerry does for IMS maintaining internal communications, keeping faculty and staff informed and engaged.

Without Kerry’s advocacy and expertise, many at IMS would not be reaching nearly as broad of audiences as we are at present. Thus, we find it essential that the university acknowledge this and secure her position in Communications.
