I-House WebsiteI-House turned 81 on August 18, 2011 and celebrated with the launch of a new website. An "Advanced Website Design" grant from the Taproot Foundation provided a team of pro-bono consultants that volunteered the time to develop the new site, which provides clear sections for applicants, residents, alumni and community. Upcoming events and "notable alumni" are also featured, with stunning new photos of residents and the building that highlight the features of this remarkable institution.

"The new website and iPhone App enhance the tools we have to engage all our alumni and friends worldwide," says I-House Webmaster Laurie Ferris, who also manages our I-House@Cal, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube video channel. "Our new newsletter format was created to match our new website, and the standard letter size of pages will make online viewing and printing easier for those who access us online."

The new Membership Program for I-House profiled on page 12 shares the benefits of new program videos, e-mailed links and print editions of the IH Times with contributing members and donors. "We love working to engage more friends and supporters in the life of I-House," says Shanti Corrigan, Director of Development & Alumni Relations.
