Are you looking to create or redesign a Website for your office or academic department? The first step is to think about your audience and the message you are trying to convey. Are you speaking to prospective students, current students, faculty and staff, or all of the above? Knowing your audience will help you develop a Website that meets their needs.
Once you have considered your audience, gather content that supports your message. This generally includes a description of your office or department and the services it provides, basic contact information and other content that users may find useful.
Now that you've given some thought to your audience and started gathering content for your site, it's time to make an appointment for a consultation with the University Communications Web team. During this meeting, we will discuss your Website and determine what services are needed to develop your Website.
