Averett University Marketing and Communications

Averett University’s Office of Marketing and Communications helps communicate with the general public by working with news media, and by providing other marketing and communications services. The office falls under the University’s Institutional Advancement department.

Members of the media should call or email our staff during and outside of regular business hours. All media requests should go through our staff, as we can assist with emergency requests or assist reporters with an immediate deadline.
