Editorial goals: We strive to deliver a magazine that attracts readers. To do that, we believe the magazine’s content must be candid, entertaining, thoughtful and provocative, and not merely rely on our readers’ presumed association with the university. It must be both interesting and relevant. That means casting an inquisitive, sometimes critical eye on the workings of Stanford, and reporting on broader social, technological, literary and scientific issues of interest to alumni. We hope to strengthen the bonds our readers have with the university through a publication marked by energy, breadth and intelligence.

Audiences: Alumni, faculty, parents, seniors, friends of the university
