Alumni magazine

An alumni magazine is a magazine published by a university, college, or other school or by an association of a school's alumni in order to keep alumni abreast of fellow alumni and news of their university with an implicit goal of fundraising. An emerging version of alumni magazines are unrelated to educational institutions. Instead the intended readers are former employees of a company. An example of this type of alumni magazine is MoForever magazine of the law firm of Morrison & Foerster; the oldest alumni magazine in the United States is Yale Alumni Magazine, founded in 1891. Chartered in 1636, Harvard University—the oldest university in the U. S.--established an official alumni association in 1840 but did not publish the Harvard Bulletin until 1898. Seven years earlier, Yale University began publishing a weekly alumni publication, credited as the first such periodical that dealt with alumni matters. In 1894, Princeton University started producing the Alumni Princetonian in the Saturday edition of the student newspaper.

The College of Wooster, has been credited as the first institution to publish an alumni magazine-the Alumni Bulletin-in 1886. "The role of college and university magazines is to inform, interest, at times to inspire." Over the years, the role of these magazines has evolved from serving as house organs of college and university administrations to independent journalistic voices that report about campus life if the stories may negatively portray the university that sponsors the publication. Alumni magazines report to different university departments. "Most of the magazines receive some support from the college and alumni. Some editors report to the alumni association, while other report to the offices of alumni relations or development."The editor of the University of Idaho alumni magazine Idaho the University explicitly stated his view of the role of these publications: "Good university magazines hold themselves a little apart from the universities they serve and farther apart from their alumni offices.

They are not disloyal. That touch of independence is a reality check: There is a larger world to be served than just that of the university." Two decades earlier, Mark Singer, the former associate editor of the Yale Alumni Magazine had strong views about the importance of maintaining an independent campus voice: "An alumni magazine should be a vehicle for continuing education. In April 1998, about 175 college and university alumni editors asked the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education to endorse a statement affirming the right of editorial freedom in their publications. Editors "should be assured the freedom to exercise their editorial judgment without censorship, within the framework of agree-upon editorial policy." The statement updated an earlier version on professional standards endorsed by the American Alumni Council, the predecessor of CASE. The proposed standards "balances good and bad news" and gives a "complete picture of the institution; the editors called on CASE to adopt the standards for all of its members and mediate disputes between editors and the university administration.

This current discussion arose because of the controversial 1995 retirement of Anthony Lyle, the editor of the University of Pennsylvania alumni magazine, Pennsylvania Gazette who published some articles that upset the Penn university administration. CASE refused the request and in October 1998 its commission on communications "concluded that it is not within CASE's mission to sponsor, endorse, or mediate the job conditions for any group of professionals withing the association." Although there are several thousand college and university alumni magazines, no comprehensive listing of these publications has been published. In 2013, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education published a study on some alumni magazine readers; some of their findings from 252 participating institutions: "Readers of all ages prefer print magazines, secondly, a combination of print and online" 45% of respondents acquire information from their alma mater. The 2019 Media Kit published the following findings about the alumni readers of these magazines: 76% said it is the "primary way I stay connected to my school".

89% "took action as a result of seeing an article or ad." 73% "read it as soon as it arrives in my mailbox." The total circulation of the nine alumni magazines is 1,300,908 In September 2015, the editors of the Cornell Alumni magazine apologized for a cover photograph which featured a split-page photograph of four white students and on the other side a color photograph of four Asian students. The cover caption: "Collegetown is changing fast. Is that a good thing?" Sophie Sidhu, associate dean and director of the Asian and Asian
