The USM website redesign is a collaboration between Marketing, leadership, area-specific stakeholders and IT. Our goals for this new site were to provide:
- Relevance of home page content for prospective and current students
- Ease of navigability for all users
- A web experience that is mobile-friendly (the content size and formatting adjusts automatically to a device's screen size)
- Enhanced visual appeal of web pages, in line with direction of contemporary Higher Ed web sites
- Phase 1 (completed with Release 2.0) included the home page and several mission-critical associated sites focused on recruitment and retention.
- Phases 2 and 3 will continue aspects of this work across the remainder of the site over the course of the next year.
