University's "Prism" Goes Global with Online Edition


Prism, The Magazine of Texas A&M International University, has gone global.

The biannual magazine will now be available for viewing on the University's web site at http://www.tamiu.edu/newsinfo/prism.html.

Candy Hein, TAMIU vice president for institutional advancement and publisher of the magazine, said the on-line availability will help the University reach a larger audience.

"Prism helps to tell the University's story. Having the magazine available on-line will help us to tell that story to a larger, global audience. With graduates all over the world, having the magazine on the Internet will help them to check in on their alma mater more easily," she said.

Prism debuted in 2000 and has helped to document the University's life through the lives of its students, faculty and alumni, and the impact of its programs and initiatives.

The current edition explores the role of technology in higher education, the arrival of expanded on-campus housing opportunities, the University's redesigned web page and more. The on-line edition features the exact same content as the traditional printed version.

The magazine is offered as viewable PDF files with free download information for those needing software for viewing. A feedback option is also available.

Prism is created by the University's Office of Public Affairs and Information Services.
