MAHE actively uses social media to disseminate information about academic and research activities of the University to its stakeholders, and to communicate success stories to the general public to enhance the public image of the university online. Keeping in mind the dynamic role of social media in the higher education sector, MAHE has established a dedicated and centralized Social Media Cell (SMC) under the Directorate of PR, Media & Social Media effective from January 1, 2021.
Social media has gained utmost popularity over the past few years as an open source of information and knowledge-sharing platform.

It is responsible for the brand-building and promotion of MAHE. The Directorate plays a significant role in serving the constituent Institutions, the students, and its stakeholders by disseminating official and seamless communication, with its primary objective as “One Voice, One Manipal.”
