Submit Stories to UCAM

Submitting a Story/Article/Press Release to UCAM

The University Communication & Marketing (UCAM) comms team works to deliver important news and updates about the University through a variety of channels. UNM Colleges, Schools and Departments can submit complete articles to UCAM for inclusion in the UNM Newsroom and UNM News Minute. Also, if you have an intriguing story concept, you can pitch it to their team of writers to explore the possibility of having them develop it into an article.
