MEDIA & PRESS CENTER
Frank Lynch University™ will launch a nationwide media campaign in December 2006 for both radio and television using Public Service Announcements (PSA's).
The purpose of the campaign will be a combination of fundraising to open our new University, and to raise national awareness of the disastrous consequences of the deterioration of our education system.
Media appearances and campaigns will emphasize the shortage of 3,000,000 math & science teachers, the fact that one half of American high schools do not even have an introductory physics course, and that the average high school graduate ranks below "proficient" on the US Department of Education's National Assessment of Adult Literacy.
The interviews emphasize the need to train not only 3,000,000 math & science teachers, but an additional 3,000,000 teachers for general literacy and logic skills. And to donate to Frank Lynch University™ both to establish a new Teachers' College and to continue the national awareness campaign.

Beginning in October and November 2006 Frank Lynch, Chancellor of the University, will be available for:
1. Off-Air background interviews for print media and the Press.
2. Live Telephone Interviews nationwide as requested by radio and television media.
3. Live On-Air appearances for both radio and television media
First Generation Videos: When sufficient funds have been donated by the general public, and/or a local TV station or video production company can be induced to provide facilities at reduced cost, or to donate the use of its production facilities, then audiotapes and videos suitable for use as free radio and television public service announcements (“PSAs”) may be created and offered to radio and TV stations. Mr. Lynch and other unpaid volunteers will use email, direct mail, and telephone calls to solicit radio and TV stations nationwide to run the free PSAs.
Print advertisements will be designed by Mr. Lynch and other unpaid volunteers, and run to attract initial students. The fundraising materials and free television PSA commercials will also include recruitment solicitations to enroll students and faculty.
Second Generation Videos: When funds from public contributions permit, the University hopes to develop higher quality, entertaining videos ranging from 15, 30 and 60 seconds, up to longer presentations, for distribution continuously on a long term basis, year after year. The videos are intended to enroll potential students nationwide to attend Frank Lynch University, promoting and glamorizing the concept of pursuing excellence and leadership in the study of mathematics, biotechnology, computer sciences, engineering, the ‘hard’ sciences, and the teaching profession. The videos will be distributed to elementary and high schools for presentation to young students. The videos will also be sent to youth groups, and television stations nationwide to be run free of charge as “PSAs.” These videos will serve the dual purpose of recruiting students to attend Frank Lynch University, and also soliciting donations for expansion.
