Coffey says the impact of this experience was a more holistic and hands-on appreciation of the start-up process, which she can apply in the classroom when teaching her graduate-level Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Mass Communication course. Coffey was also recently named advisor to a media technology start-up based in Tampa (Trunica). For more information on the eWITS program, visit: http://ewits.org/.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
