CU Online would like to welcome back Crystal Gasell to the team as the special projects manager! After returning from traveling abroad, Crystal is back with a fresh perspective that will help CU Online continue to advance our mission of helping students succeed from curiosity to career. Currently, Crystal is working on three key projects. First, she will be working with the Office of Information Technology's identity management team to implement social login. Social login will be used to better align marketing efforts and reduce password fatigue. Secondly, she will be researching and implementing a CRM system used to track marketing, recruitment, and retention efforts of our online program. Finally, Crystal will be working with Yvonne Hall to improve and redesign the CU Online marketing website. Please welcome Crystal back when you see her!
