Office of University Communications

An independent spirit lives throughout Brown.

Brown’s Office of University Communications has a dual mission — to be strategic partners to offices and departments across campus in advancing the most effective approaches to communicating their individual excellence, and to do so within the context of a charge to elevate the distinction of Brown University to broader audiences around the world.

We are many stories. One Brown.




We work with members of our community to develop and guide strategic communications and engagement across the full range of communications: news, media outreach, print, web and digital, strategic communications and marketing, crisis communications, social media and multimedia.
