The Newsletter of the University of Colombo was first published in May 2008. Its aim is to disseminate news about events and developments taking place in the Faculties, Campus, Institutes, and Centres of the University. The Newsletter is published quarterly. All academics and other staff, as well as students, are invited to submit news-items for publication in the Newsletter. The Newsletter was initially funded by a grant from the IRQUE (Improving Relevance and Quality of Undergraduate Education) project of the Ministry of Higher Education.
