Dates of existence

ca. 1970-1995


The date of the creation of the Media Services Department is unclear, however, the earliest evidence of its existence as a distinct administrative entity dates to 1970. In cooperation with other university departments, including the University Relations Department, the Media Services Department developed print and radio advertisements, announcements, and other communications for internal and external audiences, and documented the institutional life and history of the University of Winnipeg and its predecessor institutions (United and Wesley College). The department also hosted and organized a variety of presentations for staff and students. Additionally, it provided a range of services to staff and students, including the provisioning of classroom equipment, assistance in graphic and video production, audio services for special events, and photography unit. The Media Services Department was disbanded in 1995 and its responsibilities redistributed to various other departments including Technical Support Services, Printing Services, and Physical Plant. Following its closure, photographic services were contracted out.
