When Franklin Delano Roosevelt was inaugurated as president in 1933, he moved a legislative agenda through Congress to fight the Great Depression.

For students in the high-poverty Niagara Falls City School District, computer-based learning starts in pre-kindergarten.

Schools like Ohio State University and the University of Florida have tens of thousands of students enrolled, endowments in the billions and IT departments that make tech enthusiasts weak at the knees.

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
