What we do and who we are
The Office of Communications and Public Relations at Grand Canyon University is responsible for two general-interest publications created for students, faculty and staff on campus and online. Our mission is to tell the stories of the University in an informative and timely manner across multiple platforms, guided by principles of accuracy and fairness.
GCU Today is the University’s official news source. The GCU News Bureau staff is responsible for reporting in words, photos and video on the people, programs, events and activities of the GCU community.
GCU Magazine is a quarterly print publication available across campus as well as online and by mail. The magazine takes a long-form look at the issues and people making news at the University, and it also serves GCU’s alumni base.
