The new website welcomes visitors with bold new colors, a dynamic layout, and accessible articles. TCJ's current issue, focusing on food sovereignty, is featured on the homepage. This issue explores traditional foods and medicinal plants as well as the work of tribal colleges on the forefront of issues surrounding food sovereignty, sustainability, and local food systems.
The redesigned website is one of several steps TCJ is taking to support its print edition and expand its readership. "Our goal is to provide information in the preferred format of our evolving audience and reach those who may not yet know about the work of the tribal colleges," says Rachael Marchbanks, publisher of Tribal College Journal. In the coming months, TCJ plans to add the full content of its 21 years of back issues.
