GW Briefs

On Wednesday a new design for the University’s main homepage was unveiled after a year-long planning process.

“A new look for the homepage was basically long overdue,” said Tracy Schario, director of Media Relations.

An interdepartmental committee formed in fall 2005 assessed the site and recommended changes, said Deborah Snelgrove, senior executive director and chief creative officer for Student and Academic Support Services.

“This is the next step in the University’s strategic Web presence,” Snelgrove wrote in an e-mail this week. “Content redesign and reorganization highlighting the strongest assets of the GW experience are consistent with the University’s service excellence goals on the new site.”

The new site is split into three subheads including admissions, academics and alumni. Other less prominent subheads include University life, research and giving. The GW News Center is also featured on the site with links to University press releases. Campus adviseries and service links are also on the page.
