New website raises visibility of research
A new website aims to raise the visibility of research, scholarship and creative activities carried out by Washington State University faculty.
The site, http://researchnews.wsu.edu, will be unveiled officially the first week of March. As the site’s content expands, it will have stories from seven areas of academic emphasis, including arts and culture, environment, health and life sciences, innovations and leadership, physical science and technology, security and safety, and society. It will feature the latest stories as well as offer archives of previously published articles in each category.
The site reflects WSU’s strategic plan to emphasize world-class research, scholarship and arts as well as the best undergraduate experience at a research university, said Barbara Petura, associate vice president of University Relations.
The site’s partners include WSU News Service, Washington State Magazine, WSU Today, Office of Research and Office of Grant Research and Development. University Publishing and Marketing Communication created the site’s technology and design.
