El Independiente, or El Inde, is a student-produced magazine that provides experience covering multicultural communities, and is a reflection of the school's longstanding commitment to diversity.
The publication began as a newspaper in 1976. It served South Tucson and was the only bilingual periodical in the country that is produced by students in a real community on a regular basis.
Students have moved beyond South Tucson to write profiles and tackle issues affecting southern Arizonans living along the U.S.-Mexico border, some 70 miles from the university. In spring 2012, the publication moved from a newspaper to a magazine format.
