The SMART Lab is an innovative learning space that provides student and faculty researchers with the training and resources they need to conduct state-of-the-art social scientific research. Student researchers who work in the lab also learn how to use social media listening and management programs that are used by Fortune 500 companies. 

The SMART lab is operated by faculty and students from the graduate and undergraduate programs in the School of Communication. Using this facility, they provide research and data visualization and analysis resources to Radford University faculty and staff, as well as businesses in the New River and Roanoke Valley communities.

The Social Media Analytics and Research Technology (SMART) Lab is located in Hemphill Hall (3021).
