University of Calgary Provost Dru Marshall has responded to criticisms of the recent decision made by the school to not expel convicted sexual offender Connor Neurauter. In a statement released on Jan. 11, the provost called the situation “complicated” and said Neurauter has been “advised” to stay off campus for the winter 2018 semester. When asked for clarification, Marshall specified that Campus Security officers would escort Neurauter off campus if he were to appear.
How engaged are University of Calgary students? Are they happy with how they interact with the school’s faculty? And how do their experiences change over the course of their degree? These are some of the questions the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) — conducted by the Indiana University Centre for Postsecondary Research — intends to answer. U of C administrators and the Students’ Union are looking at the latest batch of results released in late 2017 to see what students had to say.
Members of the University of Calgary community have expressed outrage and frustration over the convicted sexual offender Connor Neurauter’s continued enrolment at the school, including in a petition to have Neurauter expelled that has now exceeded 20,000 signatures. Neurauter was convicted of sexual interference on Jan 4 — two years after the charges were first brought forward.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
