Changes are coming to the online Ring

The University of Victoria is one of Canada’s leading universities. Our researchers are consistently driving change around the world, and our students are actively participating in hands-on “dynamic” learning.

Now, we’ve created a better way to share their stories with the world. Later this month, the university will be launching a new online hub for campus news, which will gather in one place all the great UVic news stories you know and love, as well as administrative notices, news releases and articles about UVic published by external news sources.

UVic News will serve to inform the campus community and project the mission of the university to the world. In time, we hope to include stories from more campus publications.

In addition to gathering multiple types of stories in one place, we’ve improved the design and organizational structure of the site. Stories can be found by topic, faculty or through the search function.

Keywords generate suggestions for related stories, helping readers get a broader picture of, for example, all the great ocean research happening in our departments and centres. Or UVic’s combined efforts to build healthy and prosperous communities. Or student stories from field schools and other dynamic learning opportunities.

Visitors will also be able to search and find stories related to specific researchers and staff members. University Communications + Marketing (UC+M) and University Systems have imported Ring articles dating back to 2003 into the new system. UC+M worked with Victoriabased web company AppColony to research best practices, conduct a review of industry standards, talk to users and develop a website structure to support our desire to proudly show and share UVic stories.

Look for UVic News at by Dec. 1. For information about Ring policies or advertising in the print Ring—or if you’re looking for PDFs of back issues—visit UC+M’s website.
