IDEAS: Maybe a personal note from the leader of a group that is relevant?

Jenny suggested that we could use people rather than topic menu items as they do on 
http://www.ucmo.edu
But since we don't have that much content that would only be for one group,  we decided to stay with the current menu but think about it for the future.
