Atrevete a Ser el Primero [Dare to Be First]
Brond, David
CURRENTS, v38 n6 p32-35 Jul-Aug 2012
The University of Delaware took a bold step in November 2011 when it launched a website in Spanish. At more than 130 pages in a language other than English, it is among the most extensively translated university websites in the United States. The site is designed to introduce or reintroduce Spanish-speaking audiences in Latin America and the United States--from prospective students and the academic community to corporations and international alumni--to this major research university, which enrolls more than 17,000 undergraduates and nearly 3,700 graduate students. This online foray into another language is an important step in the institution's continuing globalization and its goal to develop a more diverse campus community.
