Communications and Marketing

The Office of Research and Innovation's marketing and communications team is poised to help constituents elevate the Virginia Tech brand by promoting research milestones, successes, and discoveries.

Additionally, the team helps the Office of Research and Innovation business and operations to effectively communicate policies, training, guidance, and more to the Virginia Tech research community and beyond. Both efforts work to bolster the university's local, regional, national and international research reputation.
