The UMW Web Site Overhaul Begins!

The University has formed a new Web Advisory Committee, comprising representative students, faculty, and staff from all areas of the University.  The committee is co-chaired by George Farrar, Associate VP of University Relations, and myself, Cathy Finn-Derecki, University Webmaster.

The first meeting of the committee was held today, September 17. The committee discussed how the web site is being used now, with the goal in mind of developing “a compelling, unforgettable public Web presence that acts as a primary recruiting tool and helps position UMW as the top public liberal arts and sciences institution in the country.”

With that objective in mind, we took a look at the road ahead. This will be the first major overhaul of the site since 2006, and, as such, is a broad-reaching project. Needless to say, feedback from all areas of the University, via the members of this committee, will be sought as we move forward. If you’d like more information, read my blog about the committee’s progress as we move along, and maybe answer a poll there while you are at it!

In the interim, look for a fresher face on our home page in the coming weeks!
