The Office of Public Affairs communicates Mississippi State University's message of learning, research, and service to a global audience across multiple digital, print and broadcast platforms.

Our award winning staff provides leadership for strategic and crisis communications, marketing and branding, news and media relations, university-wide publications including MSU’s Alumnus magazine, digital and social media content development including the university's website.

Our OPA Photography and Graphic Design groups support these areas and provide services to the campus community. We also implement and oversee the university’s Visual Identity Standards.

In addition, OPA provides administrative leadership to MSU’s University Television Center and campus radio station WSMV-FM 91.1.
