February's Friday Five
In an effort to keep everyone up-to-date on what our university experts are saying and doing, we’ll be sending out the “The Friday Five,” an email complete with five items (and maybe a couple lagniappe) meant to keep you informed of the stories we’ve placed or written, the videos we’ve produced, and the projects we’ve had a hand in creating.
Here's a roundup of all the exciting things that happened in February!
