Publisher, Bruce Walsh, on Open Access in University Affairs

U of R Press Launches New Logo

It is not every day that Margaret Atwood and Alice Munro congratulate a university on the launch of its university press, but then, it is a rare occasion when a new university press comes into being. Jumping to the head of the class on the good wishes of these literary titans, University of Regina Press officially launched June 1st, 2013 at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Victoria, BC! 

To help define who we are and what we do, we created a logo that was inspired by the Cree language and the Morse code, to both honour our roots and express a desire to communicate universally. Our motto is “For many peoples, a voice” and we try to keep that in mind with everything we do.

Please see the story of our logo here  and we hope you join Ms. Atwood and Ms. Munro in welcoming an exciting new venture to the publishing scene.


The Creative Industries Transition Fund is made possible through funding that was provided to the Saskatchewan Arts Board by the Government of Saskatchewan through the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport.
