UCI Media Statement & Update 2024/25

Dear valued colleagues,

It is with a mixture of sadness and excitement that I share the news that for the upcoming fiscal year of ​2024/25, OVPTL Communications will be re-structuring our staffing levels and roles to maximize our ​response and impact for the departments, units, and initiatives within OVPTL, DUE, DTEI, and UCI Summer ​Session. The restructure will include transitioning William, Natalie, and myself from UCI Media to permanent ​100% positions within OVPTL Communications. The implications for UCI Media and the campus are that UCI ​Media will not be staffed from July 1st, 2024, and all video/media projects will need to be produced by off-​campus production companies that are currently on the UCI preferred vendors list for video/media ​production.

Below is a list of resources, support, and information to replace the services and support of UCI Media:

I have enjoyed serving UC Irvine for the past 24 years in my role with UCI Media, but William, Natalie, and I ​are now looking forward to this new opportunity, adventure, and manageable calendar with excitement.

Thank you for your continued support over the years.

Iain Grainger

OVPTL Communications, Director

UCI Media, Director (until 06/30/24)
