Website migration momentum has picked up since onboarding our new web creative agency, Fastspot. Since our last update in January, we have launched five websites, representing nearly 100 new pages in Drupal.
In keeping with the Black History Month theme of my posts this month, I had an opportunity to talk with one of DU’s newest employees, Andriette Jordan-Fields, PhD, the first Black Community Experience Coordinator.
In my last post, I talked about the origins of Black History Month as well as the opportunities we have to learn about the ongoing struggles of Black people, celebrate their achievements, and support the fight for justice.
As February begins, we have an opportunity and renewed responsibility to learn and listen to the stories and achievements that have shaped our history and will illuminate our future. The month of February as national African American History Month had its origins in 1915 when historian and author Dr. Carter G. Woodson founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History.
It’s been five days since the inauguration, and it would seem that the world is beginning to relax a bit. Several news articles and social media posts indicate that some semblance of calm and normalcy are beginning to overshadow the last few days (and years)!
The new year has already seen new developments and fast momentum, which we anticipate will set the tone for the remaining web migration/overhaul project. We have begun onboarding efforts with our new web creative agency Fastspot.
I recently read an article written by Holocaust survivor, psychologist, and New York Times best-selling author of “The Choice: Embrace the Possible,” Dr. Edith Eger. She has found a full life despite her past, and has helped others find ways to move beyond their problems as well.
