Create New Web Pages
Creating a new site or reorganizing an existing site can be a complicated process. The most difficult part is developing and organizing the appropriate content. The Marketing and Communications and Web teams can help guide you through the necessary steps.
We will meet with you to explain the process and set up a production schedule. The timeline for completing a new site can vary widely from as soon a few weeks to as long as several months. Departments that plan out much of the Web site content before contacting the Web team will have the most success in getting effective sites created in the shortest amount of time.
Student organizations and journals: please see specific information for you on Student Organization and Journal Pages.
