  • About University Communications

    University Communications leads both outbound and internal communications with the university’s many constituencies, including current and prospective students, faculty and staff, alumni, government and public officials, and the general public – working in close coordination with staff communicators in Athletics, Alumni Relations and other departments and schools.

    Our staff provides expertise in the following areas:

    Strategic Communications

    Through the development of strategic marketing and communications plans, the Communications team works with campus partners to produce and gain attention for the many outstanding students, faculty, staff members, research projects, events and initiatives on the main Ole Miss campus as well as our regional campuses in Southaven, Tupelo, Booneville, Jackson and Grenada.

    Media Relations

    The Communications group serves as the liaison between campus partners and a wide range of broadcast, print and digital media outlets at the local, state and national level.

    Video and Digital Strategy

    The Communications team also includes resources for video production and content development for the university’s web and social media initiatives.

    Printing and Graphic Design

    The Printing and Graphic Design team works closely with other members of University Communications to produce high-quality print and digital pieces for a variety of purposes, including marketing, alumni communications, on-campus promotions and national advertising.


    The Photography team provides award-winning images to the Communications team, the Printing and Graphic Design team and to campus partners on a daily basis and are the talent behind the Ole Miss home page images as well as the university’s Flickr account.
