On June 28th, 2013 the foundation launched the site you're visiting right now. Our team approached the new site with a simple goal -- to better promote the causes at the university by making a site that allowed us to tell stories, connect with alums and friends and to make it easier to give to the university.
From beginning to end, nufoundation.org was a process. Initial hand-drawn sketches became wireframes, wireframes became mockups, mockups became templates, templates became pages which became the site you see now.
I think it's important to take the time to thank and give credit to all of the folks who helped to build this site from internal staff to vendors to interns.This was a really big project for an organization like ours and it required the hard work and effort from a lot of very talented people so thanks again to everyone involved.

The interns listed below were absolutely critical to the success of this project. If your organization is looking for bright new talent, here's a list:
