Harvard GSD:
Student Portal

Harvard's Graduate School of Design was trapped in the early '90s — students and administrators were communicating with a mailing list that blasted hundreds of people whether it was an important alert (Graduation is cancelled!) or an aside (Where's the laser cutter?). Upstatement solved the GSD's problem by building a full community website with forums, blogs, alerts, and a Q&A section. It's a much smarter portal for student communication that also acts as a repository for institutional knowledge.
