About Oregon Quarterly

Oregon Quarterly is the flagship magazine of the University of Oregon. Most of our readers, about 225,000 strong, are alumni of the university, and as such, our editorial focus is on the university’s connections to issues of state, regional, and national interest. Published four times a year in print, and available here at oregonquarterly.com, we reach the broad, well-educated audience of UO alumni and friends who live in Oregon and beyond. Winner of many national awards, Oregon Quarterly seeks to be known for excellent writing, beautiful design, and compelling stories that highlight the connections between a great university and the larger world.
