Our Mission

Student Media’s mission is to provide UCSC students an opportunity to explore, discover, and share local and global issues through the mediums of print and broadcast. This mission is achieved by challenging students to think critically about the environment they operate within, and by giving students the tools and the agency to create a media dialogue about that environment. The result is a diverse community of students operating in a multitude of organizations, creating a variety of content and transforming themselves in ways that will inform their work beyond graduation.

Currently, Student Media houses 16 various student organizations and media outlets- 11 print publications and five TV/video productions. More information about these different organizations can be found here.
