The Process

Our team has spent several months fine-tuning all of the new features. With the size of our current site (approximately 30,000 pages) getting all areas of the university on board will require additional resources, time and multiple phases.  

We will continue to analyze site analytics, investigate user experience issues, ensure web pages meet accessibility standards and re-write content to deliver clear, concise and engaging content to our audiences in an effective manner.

Content is critical to migrate into our new web environment. Departments and colleges will need to de-clutter, re-organize and re-write their pages. When it is your department or organization’s turn to migrate, your area’s web specialists will meet with someone from our team who will guide them through the transition process, and set up training sessions.
