The Muleskinner is a student newspaper that publishes monthly with ongoing Monday through Friday online coverage during regular academic weeks. As journalism has changed, so has the Muleskinner. Although its print edition is published monthly, the Muleskinner is a 24/7 operation. Its website is updated throughout the year with campus news, features, and sports stories, as well as photos and videos, all contributed by students under the guidance of student editorial staff.

The UCM Muleskinner is housed in the Digital Media Production program, within the School of Communication, History, and Interdisciplinary Studies. Many alumni launched their journalism careers at The Muleskinner.

Currently, The Muleskinner, accepts staff applications throughout the 2020-21 academic year. Applications are open to all students regardless of major. Editorial Leadership position applications are due each spring.
