The Gazette Newspaper

Get your Queen’s news online...and now in print!

Four years after discontinuing the Gazette newspaper, and in recognition of the important role print publications still play in the digital age, Queen's has decided to bring back the paper.

Through research and ­anecdotal evidence, we learned that many staff and faculty members value the tangible experience of picking up a newspaper and reading about the work happening at the university and the accomplishments of their colleagues. They also want a forum to share their ideas and views about the university and post-secondary education more generally.

The re-created Gazette seeks to build on the solid reputation it earned and the sense of community it fostered during its 41 years of publication. Many readers will be familiar with regular sections including Campus News, Forum, For the Record and Research at Queen’s. And we have added new features such as photo essays, Lives Lived and Beyond the Blackboard, stories that explore student learning experiences outside of the classroom. 

The newspaper is one aspect of the ­ongoing revamp of internal communications as we begin to integrate a number of communications vehicles – our twice-weekly email to all staff and faculty, now known as the "Queen’s Gazette Today," this Queen’s News Centre, which will be redesigned and renamed the Queen’s Gazette this fall, and a re-designed MyQueensU, the university’s intranet, which re-launches at the end of May.

We hope that the newspaper and other communications vehicles will work ­together to inform, engage and inspire ­faculty, staff and students. We want to hear from you on whether we are achieving this goal and ways that we can improve.
