University of Lethbridge News and Information Services is an arm of the Communications Office within University Advancement. Led by News & Information Manager, Trevor Kenney, and Media Relations Officer, Robert Cooney, the office is the primary source of contact for media relations at the U of L. Responsible for the writing of news releases and co-ordinating media strategies, the office also creates content for the Legend newspaper, SAM Magazine and UWeekly, maintains the UNews and ThisisMyU websites, and facilitates digital signage content.
UWeekly: An e-newsletter created every Monday during the academic year and every second Monday during the summer months (June through late August), UWeekly is a look ahead at the week’s events and activities. It also outlines news items primarily of interest to the campus employee community. UWeekly is also distributed to local and regional media and numerous community organizations to inform them of campus activities. Click here for past issues of UWeekly.
