UVic in the News is a daily digest of media stories related to UVic. It is distributed on behalf of University Communications and Marketing by Agility PR Solutions to subscribers within our campus community each weekday except statutory holidays or during the December holiday closure.

The digest is a curated selection of media coverage. It features news about UVic and also includes general news coverage on significant post-secondary trends and higher education issues of interest.

Accessing the news

The digest includes links to online stories, as well as audio and TV clips of broadcast coverage.

The online news links are live at the time of distribution; however, some media outlets may choose to de-activate their links at a later date and some articles are only available with a paid subscription.

Audio and TV clips are accessible on the Critical Mention platform as part of Agility’s service to UVic. These clips are limited length broadcasts; the transcripts will vary in accuracy due to voice-to-text restrictions and original audio quality.

All audio and TV clips are protected by copyright and are provided for listening or viewing only, not for further distribution or sharing on social media. Any permanent download of clips will be subject to a minimum charge of $75 to be paid by the subscriber. Requests for downloads can be made to .

Tips for broadcast clips

The radio and TV broadcasts appear in playback clips of approximately one minute in duration. If a particular clip doesn’t include the portion of the broadcast that you wish to hear or see, you can access other segments of the playback clip by following these instructions:

  • You’ll need to use the green and red highlighter tools found in the main screen window in the toolbar just to the left of the camera icon.
  • First, select with the green highlighter from the text on the right-hand side of your browser window where you want to begin the broadcast.
  • Once selected, click on the red “end” highlighter and drag that red highlighter to wherever you’d like to finish within the broadcast.
  • There is a limit of 10 minutes at a time to listen or watch uninterrupted within the Critical Mention platform. But you can extend the highlighted selection, using the highlighter tools, in intervals of 10 minutes to view or listen to the rest of the broadcast.
  • Please note the playback clips will expire and won't be accessible 30 days after the date of broadcast.
