Burton Blatt Institute launches annual magazine
The Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) at Syracuse University has published the first issue of its new annual magazine, Snapshots of Impact. The inaugural 30-page issue features a series of inspirational stories about people with diverse disabilities who have been positively impacted by BBI’s innovative programs and partnerships, a Q-and-A highlighting BBI’s role in the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities and other interesting facts and commentaries.
“The magazine documents BBI’s tremendous growth and measurable impact locally, nationally and internationally since it was founded in 2005. As the magazine reveals, BBI seizes on the notion of Scholarship in Action,” says Anthony Adornato ’99, BBI director of communications and the magazine’s editor. “The publication is part of an overall communications strategy to better inform our partners and the broader community about the many exciting developments going on here each day.”
Snapshots of Impact was produced in partnership with SU’s Office of Publications. Readers can download PDF and accessible versions of the magazine here.
BBI is also in the process of an exciting website redesign, scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2012. The new website will better exemplify the BBI brand online, with a stronger emphasis on the scope and impact of BBI’s work, easily identifiable focus areas and improved access to related information, and flexibility to allow for a more dynamic display of multimedia and integration of social media.
