Engaging readers through both print and digital mediums, PUPN MAG is focused on the specific interests and concerns of department heads, staff, faculty, and administrators of exclusive private colleges and universities.

 

From cover to cover, all editorial features, advertisements, product showcases, and case studies are relevant to our readership. University leaders and decision-makers at these institutions set their own budgets; even when money grows tight in some educational venues, these campuses continue to wield purchasing power.

Additionally, the leaders of these institutions are constantly expanding their campus amenities to remain competitive in recruitment and retention, as well as to maintain their elite status among educational facilities.
