EQ \ēˈkyoo\n [every quarter] (1778): an abbreviation used to express the notion of all places or directions <equally open to youth from every quarter — Samuel Phillips>

Welcome to Every Quarter, the official podcast of Phillips Academy. EQ is the place to meet thinkers, leaders, doers and makers who are grappling, changing, forging and upending. Since 1778, campus has been a haven for dialogue between interesting and influential students, faculty, alumni and visitors. And now EQ brings those conversations to you every month.

Think of EQ as short reflections to inform the curious who believe – to borrow the words of Andover’s founder, Revolutionary War statesman Samuel Phillips – that “goodness without knowledge is weak and feeble; yet knowledge without goodness is dangerous; and that both united form the noblest character, and lay the surest foundation of usefulness to [human]kind.”

So, yeah, EQ is kinda brilliant in a non sibi, finis origine pendet sort of way.
