The Alumni Relations department has launched Glimpse, a new digital publication for Webster University alumni. Glimpse’s online, interactive format offers important advantages over print. Not only are digital publications more environmentally friendly and economical than print, but they also allow slideshows, video and enhanced content to be included in stories. In addition, they allow for virtually limitless reader engagement through interaction with social media channels.
“It is fitting in this, Webster’s centennial year, for us to celebrate the forward-thinking nature of those who have come before us and to envision our continued growth and innovation as we move into our second century,” said Webster President Elizabeth (Beth) J. Stroble. “Like Webster itself, Glimpse is forward-thinking. And, with more than 176,000 living alumni worldwide and almost 20,000 students studying at campus locations in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa, it’s really not possible to cover every newsworthy story from the Webster University global network. So Glimpse will give you just that: a glimpse into some of the many fascinating and compelling stories about Webster and its alumni, students, faculty and friends.”
According to Chris McGee, president of the Alumni Association Board of Directors, “What I find particularly noteworthy about Glimpse is that this online magazine is truly alumni-focused and – driven. Take a look at our stories and our contributors, and you’ll see that the majority of those who are featured in this magazine or helped put it together are Webster graduates. I think you’ll agree with me that Webster alumni are an incredibly talented and impressive group. They are living proof that Webster University delivers on its promise to transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence.”
