The new media is increasingly becoming a press platform ofcommunicating information, expressing views, and distributing popular will. Being digital,interactive, unlimitedly storable, and beyond obstacles of time and space, the new media ishighly popular among people, especially youth. The momentum of the new media is soconsiderable that an enormous impact is made on the traditional media and the traditionalpattern of media is changing rapidly. Meanwhile, the widely used new media is bringingforward great influences to people’s life, thoughts and social developments. In this context,the task of propaganda in universities is also facing great challenges. For a long period, thepropaganda work in universities, being obviously ideological, has being playing roles ofpublicizing policies of the CPC (Communist Party of China) and China, teaching ideologyand politics, directing public opinions in the campus and so on. Facing the hit of new mediawhich has been rooted in youth, the propaganda work in universities is gradually been caughtin a passive situation of struggling to exist. As a result, it has becoming an urgent andchallenging task for the staff engaged in propaganda work in universities to carry out researchon their work from various aspects, further grasp the new law of propaganda work inuniversities in the era of new media, efficiently conquer hot issues and difficult points in thecurrent propaganda work in universities, and improve the effect of propaganda work.Being based on the background of new media era, this paper is carried out, by referringto the theory from a macroscopic level and considering more on characteristics and thedeveloping trend of new media, to analyze influences of the advent of new media and its rapiddevelopment to the propaganda work in universities, and to initially work out innovativesolutions for the propaganda work in universities in new era. Firstly, this paper introducesnew media itself and its status and role in the propaganda work. Starting with clarification ofthe definition and characteristics of new media, a comparison of different definitions of newmedia and a comparison between new media and the traditional one, this paper discussesinfluences of inherent features of digitalization, interactivity, mass information, and instanttransmission of the new media to the traditional propaganda pattern from the perspective ofCommunication Studies.

However, the new mediais a “double-edge sword” which means that the propaganda work in universities is broughtwith both favorable opportunities and serious challenges: the new media lowers the status ofpropaganda work in universities, and, meanwhile, strikes the intended publicizing contentsincluding mainstream values. The propaganda team falls behind and the working mechanismneeds to be improved. Facing a situation of opportunities and challenges, the propagandawork will have to be innovated to revive.
