GCU News Bureau It’s our most visually appealing GCU Magazine cover ever thanks to Donald Glenn‘s genius with word pictures. When the Director of the Multicultural, Diversity and Inclusion Office compared diversity to the beauty of stained glass, it inspired an eye-catching design to go with the story on how Glenn and his staff are impacting the University. There’s an equally visual story on campus life this fall (and the joys of intramural cornhole) with six pages of photos. The magazine also has stories on two other impactful developments, the Parsons Foundation grant for the Students Inspiring Students program and the new accreditation for four programs in engineering and computer science. Paul Coro tells how GCU athletes and coaches have dealt with having their seasons postponed or delayed. And not to be missed is Camden Gianni‘s “My LopeLife” piece on how his life has changed since he collapsed at volleyball practice nearly two years ago.
