After more than a year of work by a large group of campus community participants, California State University, Chico’s redesigned Web site debuts today, March 15.
The redesign of the Chico campus Web site project began in 2008. Participants began gathering information regarding audience preferences and best practices right away. Surveys were e-mailed to current and prospective students, staff, faculty, alumni, and administrators.
The now complete redesign of the Web site can be attributed to three committees: the Web Management Committee, the Web Content Committee, and the Web Design Team, who counts Tony Dunn, Dee Hoffman-Wills, Casey Huff, Wendy Needels, Alan Rellaford, and Roberta Roebuck among some of its members.
“Our Web site is a prime medium for communication that needs to be representative of our campus, portray us well, and also work in a modern and effective way. We want to make sure our content is clear and accessible, not only to our campus community, but also to external audiences such as prospective students and their parents.” said Bill Post, CSU, Chico chief information officer and vice provost for Information Management.
The site now includes a task bar of the most commonly used links, photos and stories about CSU, Chico, and a "Discover Chico" section for people who want to learn more about the campus and community.
