Welcome from the President

Dear Friend of RIC,
Welcome to the debut of What’s News online. You will see some familiar columns and faces, but you will also see new technology such as video clips. One of those videos captured me reading tales by Dr. Seuss to the first graders at the Henry Barnard School a few weeks ago. If you’d like to listen to a story or two, check us out. I thank our energetic and creative PR staff, (Jane Fusco, Gita Brown, Rob Martin, Ray Ragosta, Paul J. Silva, Gene St. Pierre and Jennifer Twining) and Web Communications staff (Karen Rubino and Adam Stanley). They are eager to share fresh news about RIC while also conserving our scarce resources. RIC is going green and saving greenbacks.

We look forward to reaching out and connecting with friends of the college near to campus as well as across the world. When you log onto What’s News, you will find the latest news of the college. You will also find a “Text Size” icon at the top of each page that will enlarge the type size for easier reading.

Remember that our staff is still experimenting with this new format. Be a little forgiving at first. Constructive criticism, though, will be welcome at whatsnews@ric.edu.

Best wishes,

Nancy Carriuolo
