Our mission is to support the communications needs of both the Office of Research and the wider university research community. We can help with website changes, graphic design and marketing needs, writing and photography, and other related services.
If you need support—or just have a great idea for a research story—we encourage you to use the forms below to let us know how we can help. The information required to complete the forms will help us understand and address your request in a timely manner.
Research Communications produces research-related content for its own platforms as well as for UGA’s main university news outlets. We also manage Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn channels on behalf of the Office of Research and Innovation Gateway.
If you have a tip or idea about a good story, let us know! The form below requests information we’ll need to evaluate your tip, and we’ll respond within 48 hours to all suggestions.

Advertising via digital signage
Research Communications manages a network of digital signage in a number of UGA facilities, including the Coverdell Center, Tucker Hall, the I-STEM Complex, Terrell Hall and the Delta Innovation Hub. Slides for these screens should be created in a 16:9 aspect ratio (1920×1080 pixels) and are permitted to run on the screens for up to one month.
Research Communications provides the templates below for creating digital slides. Once created, slides should be exported as JPG, PNG or PDF files and submitted via the link below.
We provide web support for Office of Research units, centers, institutes, research initiatives, core facilities and special project websites from concept to launch of live website on a production server. These sites must support the mission of the Office of Research.
