U of M Website Redesigned
Beginning Jan. 15, the University of Memphis website will have a sleek new look.
“Redesigning the University’s website has been a high priority,” said Linda Bonnin, vice president for communications, public relations and marketing. “We are focusing the site back on students, and we’re incorporating some new technology into it.”
“The big news with this new site is that it uses responsive design,” said Allecia Powell, U of M webmaster. “This means that the content will resize itself to fit the window or screen for any device, including mobile and tablets, so you can smoothly use the site anywhere.”
Prospective students, current students, faculty and staff will find the site more seamless to navigate. Frequently visited pages will be listed at the bottom of every webpage.
“The new website is being rolled out in three phases,” said Bonnin. “For instance, the Admissions and Advancement sites will be updated this summer as they finish their current campaigns for recruitment and fundraising.”
All U of M pages will be updated to the new design by early 2014.
