University Relations & Communications

University Relations and Communications is the central communications office of Montana State University Billings. We work to develop strong relationships with both internal and external people and entities through timely and accurate communications.
Our team is responsible for public relations, media relations, government relations, marketing communications, web development and other creative services. We strive to build trust, understanding, engagement and pride in the university community, Billings, and Montana as a whole.


Our department is an extension of our institution’s chancellor. We work diligently to advance MSUB’s mission and goals by promoting public understanding of and support for our university community, developing and disseminating useful information affecting our university and community and providing the university with a wide-range of communications publications, expertise and services. University Relations is a resource for strategic communications counsel through editorial support, graphic design, photography, video production, online communications and other various multimedia formats.


We work with the Montana University System (MUS), including the Commissioner of Higher Education and Board of Regents, MSUB’s Chancellor, faculty, staff and students to determine the broad messages to be conveyed to internal and external audiences; build university and community pride through marketing and communications initiatives; communicate with internal and external constituencies in person, through websites, in the mass media, and through our publications; and advocate for university goals, objectives, and needs to local, state and federal governments.
