The newly-established Office of Public Information (OPI) was renamed and expanded from the OVCRE's Multi-Media, Information and Dessemination Unit in 2011.
It is the multi-media information arm of the Institute tasked in disseminating significant Institute events or achievements in research and extension, creative output of its constituents, and the academic and administrative activities.
The OPI likewise has started to operate the Institute’s news releases in the official Institute webpage as it helps in its reformatting to eventually publish an e-newsletter in its advocacy for a paperless environment. It published the Proceedings of the Annual 20th Iligan National Writers Workshop (INWW), the only nationally-accredited workshop by the National Commission for Culture & Arts (NCCA) to do so.
Its on-going projects include the publication of an e-Cumulative Index of publications by the faculty published in The Mindanao Forum since 1982; its quest for accreditation by CHEd, Thomson Reuters and Scopus; the compilation of theses and dissertations for the graduate, postgraduate and undergraduate levels; the digitization of the Institute’s archived materials kept in the Office of the Institute Secretary and in other offices on campus, the acquisition and upgrading of its facilities such as a Digital Information Outdoor Bulletin, a Desktop Printing facility, and the publication of the History of the MSU-IIT in preparation for its 50th founding of its Charter in the year 2018.
