Breaking news is made at UBC every day
As a world-class research institution, UBC produces a great deal of news. The university has a Media Relations team dedicated to producing interesting content, arranging expert commentary from the UBC community, pitching stories to media outlets, and managing issues of public interest. Team members specialize in assigned academic areas of the university.
The UBC News website hosts content about topics ranging from cutting-edge research, to student achievements, to important institutional updates. Working with the Media Relations team to produce content for UBC News is a good idea if your story has a strong connection to current events, or will be of significant interest to a very broad audience.
