TWU To Launch Web Site Redesign

8/22/03


DENTON — Visitors to Texas Woman’s University’s Web site will notice changes beginning in mid-September. A new home page (www.twu.edu) and admissions pages are the first steps in a comprehensive Web site redesign.

This spring, TWU Chancellor Dr. Ann Stuart endorsed plans for the changes that build on the success of the existing Web site. Designed to provide a greater focus on recruiting both undergraduate and graduate students and to serve as a stronger marketing tool for TWU, the new site was created in collaboration with the university’s 120 webspinners, who are responsible for the day-to-day maintenance of individual department and office web sites.

“The changes make the site more reflective of TWU,” said Liz Norell, TWU director of Web communications. “Visitors should find the site easier to navigate with the redesign.”

Norell has been working with TWU webspinners for several months addressing design, content, search engine optimization and other matters. Faculty, staff, deans, department chairs and many students also provided input on the redesign.

September’s launch also will include a new virtual campus tour, new campus maps accessible from one location and a Chancellor On the Move page. No changes will be made to the Pioneer Portal, which will remain accessible from the TWU home page.

The Pioneer Portal allows password-protected access to the TWU network where students can register for classes; students, faculty and staff can send and receive e-mail; and faculty and staff can retrieve records.
