Objective | Over the course of a year the Information Technology Department and Marketing Communications Department worked through a major redesign of the University website in efforts to provide cleaner lines of communication with our prospective and current student audiences. This redesign involved major updates to the home page, and landing pages for Future Students, Current Students, Academics, Parents and Family, Athletics and Alumni.

Result | After the launch of the new website the team and school received widespread positive feedback on the change. Through the redesign we were also able to address and resolve some major issues with user accessibility and OCR (optical character recognition) compliance, reaching an accessibility score of 87.7%.
