The university's magazine recently earned national recognition.

IUP Magazine was one of five winners in the External Publication category of the Educational Advertising Awards competition sponsored by Higher Education Marketing Report. The other winners in the category were Ferris State University, University of Montana, University of Missouri-St. Louis, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and Joliet Junior College.

The magazine is distributed to nearly 100,000 readers three times a year. Its companion web component is available year round and attracts readers from eighty nations. Sixty-eight percent of its traffic consists of first-time visitors to IUP's website.

The magazine, which has received scores of awards since its first edition in 1989, is published by the Communications Office. Karen Gresh serves as editor.
