The University of Massachusetts Amherst

Research Communications and Outreach

The University of Massachusetts Amherst is a premier national research university. In close collaboration with the Office of Research and Engagement, University Relations highlights research, scholarship, and creative activity by faculty, students, and staff across a variety of channels as a key part of the university’s story.

On the research section of the UMass Amherst website, we feature the people and programs that make our research enterprise among the best. We share the latest research news and discoveries, along with the stories behind research with real-world impact. Through the Spotlight Scholars and Rising Researchers faculty and student achievement programs, we shine a light on researchers making a difference. Our research LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram channels also offer a window into the latest and greatest in research at UMass.

Additionally, we work with UMass Amherst faculty, administrators, and staff to develop clear, effective institutional marketing, public relations, and other targeted communications about campus research and scholarship and their broader impacts. Our Revolutionary Research newsletter also delivers stories of research and discovery directly to inboxes four times a year.
