Muleskinner (Student Newspaper)

UCM's Student Newspaper

The Muleskinner is always looking for students to get involved with the newspaper. You don’t have to be a journalism student to join our crew. Our student press is for those who are curious, creative and genuinely interested in our campus community.

Journalism at UCM

The University of Central Missouri has a rich history of journalism dating back to 1878 and continuing today. The student press is still very active on campus but looks vastly different from the early days of broadsheet newspapers large enough to cover a kitchen table. Our look and methods have evolved in tandem with new tools and technology necessary to deliver the news and remain relevant and interesting in a digital age. However, our mission of helping to educate, inform and engage the campus community has not changed.
