Blink is a team effort

Blink is a project of Information Technology Services but is maintained by subject-matter experts from departments throughout campus. Workplace Technology Services (WTS) coordinates training and updates and maintains the Blink home page.

If your department is not represented in Blink but would like to be, contact us.

Contact Workplace Technology Services to add content to Blink.

You can promote your UC San Diego events, announcements and news stories on the Blink home page.

Blink is designed to be...

  • Accurate: Information is accurate and up to date
  • Clear: Content is easy to read and understand
  • Responsive: The site is designed to display correctly on all devices
  • User-friendly: Organization is based on the needs of site users rather than those of the content providers
  • Accessible: The site is navigable by users with disabilities

Blink aims to avoid legalese. Pages may link to policies, procedure documents, notices and other official documents, but these will not reside within Blink.

Help us continually improve Blink by providing feedback.
