The UCLA Center for Communications and Community is a research, training and journalism institution that seeks to fill the void between community development advocates, the nonprofit sector, media research scholars and journalists. The center expands the scope and accuracy of media coverage by building the communications capacity of community based groups and by providing journalists with the resources and connections they need to better understand their regions.
Positioned at the intersection of communications and community development. Context is a journal that includes reports, commentaries and analysis on the media and communities. Journalists, academic researchers and leading community stakeholders provide the context for Context. Each edition has a theme, providing a convergence of media and community-based perspectives on one issue.
