Dates of existence



In 1965, Information Services assumed the responsibilities of the Information Office which had existed from 1955 to 1965. Like its predecessor, the mandate of Information Services focused on the dissemination of information to the public by arranging interviews with the news media, promoting participation in television and radio broadcasts, and preparing news releases for all potential news outlets. The office published UBC Reports, and produced UBC Now, a weekly half-hour television series which chronicled university activities. Information Services continued until 1985 when its public relations functions were assumed by Community Relations.
