The purpose of Continuum is to explore the traditions, heritage, and evolving excellence that are the essence of Utah’s flagship public institution of higher education.The magazine seeks to offer insight into University-related events, to help stimulate thought and formulate opinion, and to place in perspective the unfolding chapters of University history. Continuum also aspires to enhance the image of the University, promote pride in the institution, and demonstrate its national and international reach and influence.
The pages of Continuum keep alumni, faculty, staff, and community members up to date through in-depth features covering science, health, arts, humanities, athletics, and the people at the U whose work is at the national forefront. The magazine has a circulation of about 400,000 copies nationwide each year, with distribution to about 115,000 households each for the Fall, Winter, and Spring issues and at least 52,000 for the Summer issue. Using the industry standard of an estimated 2.5 readers per issue (generally considered a safe to low pass-along estimate), that calculates to about 1,000,000 readers each year.
Continuum is only one of the many benefits offered to members of the University of Utah Alumni Association (dues-paying members automatically receive the magazine four times a year). Sign up for membership in the Alumni Association online.
