Inside IPFW Debuts New Look
Don Mascot 2
This week marks the debut of Inside IPFW's new look. We hope you find the design to be clean, modern, and easy to read. Feature stories are now full-width, with small,ongoing updates such as New Faces and StreetWise at the bottom in a two-column format.

We've added a new feature----Photo of the Week-----where you will find new additions (or hidden gems) from IPFW's vast photo vault.
Two new publications from the Chancellor's office now contain news that was formerly found in Inside IPFW: IPFW in the News and From the Desk of the Chancellor are delivered to you weekly by Nicole Wilkins, chief communications officer. These communiqués feature recent mentions of IPFW research, people, programs, and events in the media and deliver news of students, faculty, and staff achievements.

Editorial guidelines describing the types of information we are seeking for these communications pieces can be found in the News section of the IPFW website.

Inside IPFW will endeavor to keep you up-to-date on the topics that affect you professionally and personally. Get the scoop here, every week.
