With this spring 2017 issue, the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Engage magazine celebrates its 10th anniversary of sharing the University community’s successes.
“Since we launched the first issue in spring 2008, Engage has served as the cornerstone communications vehicle to share the University’s story with alumni, faculty, staff, students and the broader community,” said Natalie Johnson, Engage managing editor.
In 2007, Engage staff spent a year reimagining and redesigning the content and look of the former University Oshkosh magazine to develop a more contemporary publication that considers relevant topics and broad-ranging issues.
“The goal always has been to truly engage readers by showcasing how the University’s impact extends beyond campus borders and to offer new insights into UW Oshkosh’s distinguished past, vibrant present and exciting future,” said Jamie Ceman, Engage executive editor and UWO’s chief communications officer.
The first issue highlighted how engaged students impact their communities, while subsequent topics included envisioning a green world, exploring a future for teachers and finding common ground to maintain civility. The online version (uwosh.edu/engage) offers readers bonus content, including videos and photo galleries.
“With every issue of the magazine, members of the Engage staff—from the writers and editors to the photographers and designers—work to create a compelling, quality publication. Nowhere is that effort more evident than with our creative and colorful covers that illustrate each issue’s theme,” Johnson said.
