Affinity Groups

UCLA's IT tech community is enhanced by several affinity groups whose members collaborate and share best practices.  If you would like to start an Affinity Group or would like your group listed here, please email

Campus Media Producers 

The UCLA Campus Media Producers group meets regularly to share and discuss tips and techniques for creating high quality media primarily for online and hybrid instruction. We use this forum to coordinate monthly meetings and to ask questions and disseminate information. 

Campus Web Publishers 

The UCLA Campus Web Publishers (CWP) is a forum for people publishing websites on campus where people can come to learn/share/explore new and existing technologies and ideas. Members have technical backgrounds, others come from the publications side and many are jacks-of-all-trades. Meetings are held every few months where presentations and discussions are given from Design Fundamentals to Content Management Systems and everything in between. CWP is also a great place to share projects that you’ve been working on. Past project presentations have included the UCLAKnowledgeBase and BruinCast. Meets irregularly to give demos and talk about web technology and issues.!forum/cwp-l  

Instructional Support Story Swap 

The UCLA Instructional Support Story Swap group facilitates the sharing of tools, tips and techniques centered around instructional technology and design. 

Join our conversations in the #iss-swap channel in the UCTech Slack Workspace!

UCLA UX's mission is to promote UX Design at UCLA and encourage collaboration. We are a grassroots organization whose goal is to bring people together from all parts of UCLA that might never otherwise meet, talk about the projects we're working on, share resources, and work together to create a more unified and accessible user experience at UCLA. We hold brown bag sessions with UX speakers from across campus, and meetups to share articles, ideas, and questions about UX and its many disciplines (including user interface, interaction design, usability testing, user research, accessibility, motion design, and information architecture).
