What this site is:

This site is a clearinghouse of electronic communications sent by the various functional areas that comprise the Office of Research.  The content found here is fed primarily by email listservs that can be subscribed to independently at http://research.uci.edu/news.

The website acts as a single-source location for policy updates, information pertaining to the submission of contracts and grants, training  and event announcements, and other information germane to the operations of the UCI research enterprise.  It also serves as an online archive of all such  announcements.  The site can be viewed by anyone and the information here, despite it’s internal-focus, is not considered confidential in any way.

What this site isn’t: 

Though news stories of public interest will occasionally appear on this site, it is currently not geared for that purpose.  Stories about UCI’s amazing researchers and their discoveries can be found most easily at https://news.uci.edu/.
