The mission of the Office of Student Media

To provide UA students with the opportunity to develop skills to help them communicate effectively, think critically, work cooperatively and prepare for successful careers across continents and cultures. While developing these skills, students will produce quality media that deliver relevant news, information, and entertainment, and operate free from prior restraint or censorship in a socially and financially-responsible manner.
