About the Emerald

The Emerald has served the University of Oregon with news and information since 1900. Our mission is to train students, serve the UO community and run a financially sustainable nonprofit business.

The Emerald produces a news magazine twice a week and online news 24/7, including our website, Facebook page, Twitter news and sports accounts and an email edition  But we do a bunch of other stuff, too: Marketing, events, advertising and tech ventures. (See a list below.) Our students work for The Oregonian, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, Nike, GQ, Google, Facebook, Amazon.

In 2013, the Emerald’s Revolution transitioned the company from a traditional newspaper to a modern college media company. College Media Matters, the leading college newspaper blog, named the Emerald the 2013-14 college newspaper of the year. Our Revolution has also been covered by Oregon Quarterly, Huffington Post, Harvard’s Nieman Journalism LabBloomberg Businessweek, USA Today College and industry analysts and groups, including PBS MediaShiftPoynterKen Doctor and Steve Buttry. Since 1997, the Emerald has earned the Pulitzer Prize of college journalism — the Associated Collegiate Press’ Pacemaker award — three times and has been a finalist in print and digital categories five times.
