Doug Openheimer

A 1974 graduate of the University of Idaho College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, Oppenheimer earned his degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism. He went on to work as a reporter for the Idaho Statesman, and coauthor a book titled: “Sun Valley: A Biography.”

“My college experience at the University of Idaho helped me on many different levels,” he said. “I learned how to ask questions, acutely develop my sense of perspective and sense of self. It was at the end of the Vietnam War and there were a lot of important questions that needed to be answered. The environment at the University of Idaho helped me do that very thing.

“The university also gave me a wonderful opportunity to have an on-campus living experience. The extraordinary education that the school offers, enhanced by the unique on-campus living experience was a wonderful combination.”

Oppenheimer is a member of the Journalism & Mass Media Advisory Board and the James A. and Louise McClure Center for Public Policy Research Advisory Board. He is also a member of the University of Idaho Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors, and has served on numerous non-profit boards in the Treasure Valley.

The Oppenheimer Ethics Symposium, which recently entered its second year at U-Idaho, was underwritten by a gift from Oppenheimer and his brother, Arthur F. (Skip) Oppenheimer, ’68, also a U-Idaho alumnus.
