We are saddened and stand in utter disbelief about the events that have transpired over the weekend in Charlottesville. White supremacy and racism have no place in our community. We stand in opposition to intolerance, hatred, and bigotry of all forms. Charlottesville is a lovely community that did not deserve the hatred that was unleashed here this weekend. The town—known locally as C-Ville—is a progressive, tolerant, welcoming, small city, nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If you’ve been to edUi in recent years, you’ve likely seen this wonderful place first-hand. And maybe it holds a special place in your heart the way it holds one in ours. Our beloved small town is reeling today. Emotions are raw and most people still do not know what to make of the events this weekend. How do you move forward from a display of such violence?

edUi’s hometown of Charlottesville, VA has recently been embroiled in a controversy over the moving of a Confederate statute and renaming of some local parks. It’s brought a lot of attention to what’s normally a pretty quiet college town nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains. People from around the country have come here to express views that are not reflective of the vast majority of people who live and work in this community. As members of the Charlottesville and University of Virginia community we stand behind UVA President Theresa Sullivan’s affirmation of our shared values of diversity, inclusion, and mutual respect. Further, we think this is an excellent opportunity to remind all our conference attendees that edUi is committed to a diverse, inclusive, and safe conference experience for everyone. We have a Code of Conduct and by attending edUi you’re agreeing to abide by it. It’s pretty simple. In fact it can be summed up in two words, “Be Nice.” See you in September.
Nick DeNardis, director of Web Communications at Wayne State University and technical director for TEDxDetroit, is leading the Analytics Workshop at this year’s edUi conference. We wanted to get to know him better, so we asked him a few questions.
Sara Wachter-Boettcher is leading a workshop at this year’s edUi conference on Compassionate Content & UX, in addition to presenting her keynote, Design for Real Life. Sara is an author, designer, and content strategist at a consultancy based in Philadelphia. We wanted to get to know her better, so we asked her a few questions.
