The Looking Glass: Supporting Student Research
The University Honors Program produces the academic and creative publication The Looking Glass as part of our commitment to service-learning. The magazine’s editorial staff consists entirely of honors students. The magazine features submissions by honors students in the genres of original research, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, short stories, essays, photography, and art. This issue includes thirty-two entries from eleven honors students representing eight academic programs. The publication represents a diverse group of voices and perspectives that exemplify the high quality work of our students. The Looking Glass, while unique to the University of Idaho, is also a shared experience of honors students and their programs across the country that produce similar publications.
What will the funding do?
Your donation fosters student learning and creative activity. Through your support of a print publication our students gain a unique educational experience. We intend to use the money to offset the cost of publishing Volume 15 of the magazine.
Producing a print magazine offers an academic forum for nearly 700 honors students for their work to be published and to retain a copy for life. For the student editorial staff the process, including soliciting submissions, typesetting, editing, designing pages, and print proofing offers a unique laboratory experience which earns them honors credit and gains them valuable educational skills.
