Welcome to the updated UCLA Newsroom. More than just the design is new, so have a look around. Don't be alarmed if a few elements look out of place or a link doesn't work — we will be rolling out the changes for several days.

Among the highlights of the new site: We have reorganized into bigger and better sections that reflect the impressive range of activity on campus. If you want to follow UCLA achievements in science, medicine or the arts, for example, you may now sign up to be alerted when stories or news releases post.

  • Science + Technology covers developments in the life, earth and space sciences, engineering, computer science, nanotechnology, physics, chemistry and mathematics.
  • Health + Behavior is the section for research and news in medicine, public health, dentistry, nursing, psychology and the wider field of brain research and human behavior.
  • Environment + Climate presents UCLA's latest work in the environmental sciences, sustainability and the fields affected by climate change.
  • Nation, World + Society provides a home for UCLA news in public policy, law, education, business and economics, politics and global studies.
  • Arts + Culture gathers news from UCLA's schools of arts and architecture, music and theater, film and television, as well as the performing and fine arts and the broader humanities and languages.
  • Students + Campus Life is the section for news about UCLA's amazing students and the culture and physical environment of UCLA and the neighborhoods around campus.
  • University News will make available official news about UCLA and its institutions, notable awards and gifts, and the University of California system.
  • Opinion + Voices publishes contributions by UCLA faculty and leaders on important issues in Los Angeles, the nation and the world.
  • UCLA in the Community is where to find stories about the local and global impact of Bruins and the research conducted here.     

Stories highlighting the accomplishments of our faculty and staff can now be found throughout UCLA Newsroom. The Faculty + Staff page includes familiar features such as Faculty Bulletin Board and Out and About, plus a calendar of events on campus each day and more news designed for readers who work on campus. The former UCLA Today website has been discontinued and its archives incorporated into UCLA Newsroom.

For journalists, there is a helpful new resources page with quick links and tips for covering news at UCLA. Reporters seeking a professor to speak about hot issues in the news can now make a connection using the Media Guide to UCLA Experts. The UCLA Broadcast Studio is available for expert interviews on television or radio.   

Also, look for UCLA Newsroom on Facebook. We encourage you to like our new page, share UCLA's stories and come back often to see what's new. You can also join the 14,000 journalists and interested others who follow @UCLANewsroom on Twitter.

We will be working out the kinks for a few days, but if you have comments or questions about something you see (or don't see), email UCLA Newsroom. We appreciate hearing from you.
