What We Do

The UConn Research Communications team is responsible for promoting and disseminating research conducted at the university. Our primary functions include:

  • Public Relations
    • We write and distribute press releases and manage media inquiries related to research conducted at UConn.
  • Science Communication
    • The team works to translate complex research findings into accessible language for the general public, especially by producing content for the university’s house media outlet, UConn Today.
  • Social Media and Web Presence
    • Research Communications manages social media accounts (X, LinkedIn, and Instagram), the university’s research websites (internal and external), and online publications to keep the public informed about ongoing research projects and their outcomes.
  • Event Promotion
    • Research Communications helps organize and promote events related to research, such as lectures, seminars, and conferences. This helps in engaging the public and other stakeholders.
  • Internal Communications
    • In addition to external communication, our team ensures that research findings and news are effectively communicated within the university community.
  • Graphic Design and Multimedia
    • Our talented graphic designers and multimedia specialists help create visually appealing materials to accompany research communications, such as infographics, videos, and other visual content.
  • Media Training
    • We provide media training to researchers and UConn service units to help them effectively communicate their work to the public and the press.
