About the UC IT blog

The University of California (UC) Information Technology (IT) blog informs and connects those working in the technology field at the university, along with those working closely with university technologies. It is created by the UC Tech community – with nearly 10,000 members across 22 UC locations. The Information Technology Services Department at the UC Office of the President publishes each weekly issue thanks to hundreds of contributors. As one of our readers commented recently, “It’s the only systematic way I can hear what’s going on across the UC in IT.” 

About UC IT Blog readers

About 67% of blog audiences are in a technical role at the university. Similarly, 69% are highly experienced in their field, having worked in it for more than 10 years. About an equal portion of readers are new to the UC tech community vs long-term members of the university. About 40% of the UC IT Blog audience of 3K opens the newsletter each weekly issue, while most reporting reading it about one time per month.

What to expect in May 2024

Starting May 1, there are early deadlines for the UC Tech conference. Also in May, we celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day (G.A.A.D.), and  Asian-Pacific Islander, Jewish, Elder, & Military History/Appreciation Months. Please share your views and news on these and other topics of interest to you. See the 2024 UC Tech community content calendar here.
