Vermont Quarterly

Mission Statement

Vermont Quarterly magazine promotes the achievement, aspiration, heritage, and spirit of the University of Vermont community with a publication that is relevant, editorially and visually compelling, and highly readable. Content is driven by the simple truth that for a message to be effective, it first must be read. For Vermont Quarterly, this means selecting stories that both reflect the university’s priority messages and appeal to a broad audience of readers, then drawing those readers in with the elements of a professional quality magazine—excellent writing, design, and photography.

Diversity of individuals, endeavors, thoughts, and voices is central to the strength of a university. The same can be said for a magazine. Vermont Quarterly reflects the multi-faceted nature of an institution that spans more than two centuries; an academic enterprise of eight schools and colleges; and a community of alumni, students, faculty, and staff of more than one hundred thousand people.

Ultimately, Vermont Quarterly fulfills its mission by building pride and a sense of connection with alumni, parents, and friends of the university. That pride and connection is essential groundwork for advancing the institution through effective private giving, student recruitment, public support, and the myriad ways a consistent, positive, powerfully told message ripples outward.
