This site was created by students at Michigan State University in Dr. John Monberg's WRA 330 (Writing Research in Communities and Cultures) and GSAH 312 (Media Mobility: Change, Access, Representation) to inform East Lansing Residents about the East Lansing 2030 Exhibit at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum.

Students in GSAH 312 worked to create content for each of the eight architectural firms represented in the exhibit. These students took original photographs of important sites across East Lansing that are meaningful to the architects' plans, and they created videos that connect the architects' visions to the everyday lives of East Lansing Residents.
In WRA 330, professional writing students worked to organize this content to create a site that is user-centered and accessible to the general public. These professional writers came together from various areas of expertise (social media, visual design, and information architecture) to create this cohesive site.
