Background and Goals
In January 2011, a new look and enhanced features were introduced on the top-level pages of the UNLV website.
Some improvements you’ll see include:
- An updated, more modern design
- Stronger organization and streamlined content, making it easier to find the information that matters most to you
- Redeveloped audience homepages devoted to the specific needs and interests of major stakeholders
- Improved management and maintenance of information through a new content management system
Our Team and Process
The redesigned site, managed and maintained by Web Communications, comes after an extensive three-year process involving feedback from:
- Students and parents
- Student Affairs representatives and academic advisors
- President's Cabinet and academic faculty
- College communicators
- Development, alumni, and public affairs professionals
- Current Web Communications clients
These improvements are phase I of a multi-phase process that will eventually refresh all websites maintained by Web Communications.
In March we will begin phase II and work with our clients to convert their websites. We will convert sites to the new design and content management system one by one over the next several months. Keeping the content on your current site up-to-date is the best way to prepare for this change.
If you are a campus web or application developer looking for a design template or style guide to assist with the sites you maintain, please contact the Web Communications office. A set of templates and style guides are currently in development.
Your feedback has shaped the changes and improvements we’ve made to the site. Please keep sharing your thoughts with us and visit our feedback page.
