New Responsive Design Website

As of 6:00 A.M. Wednesday, July 23 ITS launched the University’s first responsive design website. This allows our website  to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones, tablets, netbooks, laptops,  desktop computers, and television based browsing). Many thanks are needed for all who were involved over this two year process.

  • First and foremost, thanks to Michael Gorman who provided roles as lead architect, programmer, and web developer on the project.
  • Matt Kurz for the many hours as the main content lead, project lead and author.
  • Ann Aubry for her tireless hours on implementation, author, and editor. Ann served on all of the campus groups formed during this entire process, including the Web Advisory Group, Web Redesign Work Group, and the Implementation Task Force.
  • Robert Frank III for his web design and artistic vision.
  • Rick Lindquist for his training support and conversion assistance.
  • Chandra Shipley for her work on the course plans and incorporation of the academic advising templates.
  • Paul McNamara for his web design and photographic cataloging work.
  • Amy Young for her brilliant work on all of the campus videos.
  • Laurie Diekhoff for her assistance on the internship pages as well as her work on the new internship searchable database.
  • Crystal Boyce for directing the usability studies and providing much needed feedback during the testing stages of our site.

To all the other members on WAG, WRWG, and ITF we could not have launched this web redesign without your countless hours of hard work and assistance. Other members on these committees include Bob Murray, Chris Kawakita, Kim Hill, Brad Sheese, Sue Wilson, Sue Anderson, Matthew Damschroder, Tim Obermiller, Carlo Robustelli, Jeff Mavros, Alan Russian, Alex Bechtel, Jake Thaker, Stephanie Kohl Ringle and Tera Lippert.

    Nice job on the new web site. Kudos to you and your team. Especially impressed with the “two hamburger” idea for mobile navigation. Cool innovation.
    Wishing you the best,
