Accommodating URL Changes for the UMW Web Site

As you know, we are moving to WordPress and the new UMW Web site will launch on October 7. Most URLs of department sites are changing, and we don’t want you to worry. Please note that we will provide automatic redirects as follows:

  • Current department home pages
  • URLs published in EagleEssentials, the Academic Catalogs, and the Dictionary of Academic Regulations

In addition, we are working with the Design Services office to make sure that any publications coming across the transom will use the new URLs. The above steps will cover you for the year until you need some reprints.

If you have any “deep-linked” urls (sub-pages other than those other than the links mentioned above) that are on current print materials with a long shelf life, please notify the Web Communications office (webmaster at umw.edu) to let us know so we can create a redirect for you.

Looking forward to making the switch, and thanks to everyone!
