WMU Magazine now on Web

Feb. 9, 2004

KALAMAZOO--The latest issue of the WMU Magazine is now available online at <www.ur.wmich.edu/magazine>.

The issue, which was prepared for publication last fall, was not printed because of the need to reduce budgets, according to Matt Kurz, associate vice president for university relations at Western Michigan University.

"Instead, we've tapped the technical abilities of our Web staff and posted the entire magazine online," Kurz says. "There are no PDF files to download or hoops to jump through--just 50 pages of great information about the University that is ready to read."

Stories in the new issue include a feature on composer Curtis Curtis-Smith, a photo essay on the new engineering campus, a Centennial feature on WMU's first international student, and stories on the Biosciences Research and Commercialization Center and a College of Education effort to collect the memories of earlier generations of WMU-trained teachers.

Those who normally received the printed version of the magazine are being notified that it is available on the Web through a combination of e-mail and postal mail messages.
