For the first time in its history, CFAES Continuum is going digital.
Continuum is the college’s biannual alumni magazine that features the work of the CFAES community—students, faculty, staff, and alumni. It’s a place to learn what’s new in the college, hear from Cathann A. Kress, CFAES dean and Ohio State University vice president for agricultural administration, and find out what great changes our alumni are making in the world.
So why the addition of the digital version now?
It’s part of an effort to engage both current students before graduation, and alumni who might be more interested and willing to connect online. It’s also a way to add more content, including videos and photos, that can help the stories come alive. Additionally, it’s a way for the CFAES community to engage with these stories on a deeper level in addition to the printed magazine.
We will continue to work with alumni relations to introduce the digital version to the alumni community, and with academic programs to introduce it to current students. We’re also sharing it with our college communicators and Extension educators to promote the site as a new opportunity for engagement, support, and advancing our college.
Another advantage of the digital version is that we’ll be able to measure visits to the site, the level of interest in various stories based on visits, and gather insightful data to help guide us forward.
