SUNY Cortland will unveil its newly designed website to the campus community on Tuesday afternoon, June 29.
Design concepts were created by dotCMS of Miami, Fla., the firm that developed the College’s content management system.
Guidance for the project was provided by the Web Advisory Team and managed by a smaller Web Redesign Team consisting of Tracy Rammacher, director of publications and electronic media, Gradin Avery, associate provost for enrollment management and marketing; Michelle Cryan, Web communications manager; and Loren Leonard, Web development support specialist.
Remodeled from marketing research and user input, the new site characterizes the energy and momentum of the College. With new features such as a scenic header and footer across most pages, the site includes audience-driven navigation, rotating profiles of faculty, staff and students, and a people/site search box to efficiently locate information.
Visitors will find a host of informative pages that showcase topics such as academics, cost/aid, faculty and student excellence, teacher education, honor societies, on- and off-campus living, a visitor's guide, health and wellness, the community, employment and more.
With the website launch, visitors are being asked for their assistance.
“The new website is a work in progress," said Rammacher. "Campus community members can assist with refining the site by reporting any broken links or errors through the site’s ‘Contact Us’ link.
"In addition, the home page will provide a place for suggestions and feedback. We want users of our website to continue as the primary source for improvements."
Upgrading to a dynamic online calendar, infusing new content and incorporating the new design into the College’s athletics site are among the ongoing projects the team will be focusing on during the coming year.
