Iris Magazine is the Center's award-winning, nationally acclaimed magazine for thinking young women at the University of Virginia and beyond.
Iris: A Magazine for Thinking Young Women
In the magazine's 30-year history, it has always served as a teaching vehicle, educating University students how to create change through print media. Currently, student interns have the opportunity to work with ongoing Iris staff to decide on the content and look of both Iris magazine and website, gather information about articles and ideas of interest to the target audience, develop advertising and marketing plans for the magazine, and distribute it to subscribers, contributors, and libraries. Thus, the students who work with Iris learn the publishing trade from all angles, content, advertising, design, and distribution. They also have the opportunity to work with the networking interface of alumnae, community members, and current students developed for use via Iris online.
