Articles on Communique act as both internal news items and as press releases to external media. They also feed into the weekly student and faculty/staff Communique newsletters.
UCCS publishes content using a modified AP style. When submitting first drafts to University Communications and Media Relations, keep a few stylistic elements in mind (pdf).
