Sparking Progress

Barbara Kufiadan BS’19 helped launch the U’s Black Cultural Center and has started an organization to help support and encourage Black women in graduate school [“Ask Black Grad Girl,” Winter 2023].

Ms. Barbara Kufiadan is a formidable Black woman who will continue to make strides for Black women far beyond her work that began at the U on the Black Cultural Center. She is much appreciated.

Love the article. Thank you for the work you’ve done!

Pathways to the Past

We turned back the clock and toured the U campus of the early 1900s to learn about some of the buildings that have been around for a century or more [“100 Years Ago,” Winter 2023].

Proud to be a graduate from this great school. It’s wonderful to read about the history of the U. This coming fall we’ll have our third generation attending the U!

My grandmother, Lucile Chase, studied at the university and became a teacher in 1909. 

Lessons from D-Day

As memories of WWII begin to fade, the U is preserving the stories, lessons, and legacy of the war [“Allied Against Tyranny,” Winter 2023].

I think people born in the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s have no real understanding of the sacrifice and commitment that winning WWII was for my parents’ generation. Many younger people have no idea how many people died. The more that can be done to educate people on this war, the better off we will all be.

Social Spotlight

It wasn’t just star athletes in the spotlight when the NBA All-Star Weekend rolled into town this past February. Morgan Williams, a student in the U’s Master of Business Creation program, made the final round of the first-ever NBA All-Star Pitch Competition. She founded Blendyd Studios, which provides affordable recruiting software to help the trucking and logistics industry make hiring more efficient.
