Pay a Visit to the New CALS Website

CALS Website

Although the address is the same, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences’ home on the web has been completely renovated. The website has a new, streamlined look backed by a user friendly architecture.

“It was built with you in mind, whether you’re a prospective student, a grower looking for extension resources, or an alumnus wanting to stay connected,” said Elizabeth Braun, assistant dean of communications. “We hope the new format will comprehensively promote the spectrum of CALS and keep important information within a few clicks away.”

The core site launched August 1, with features including quick links for students, staff, faculty, and alumni; daily events and news; and direct links to admissions, academics and research, outreach and extension, and campus life. The next phase, which will update department, major, and unit websites, will be completed this winter.

“The new format was developed with input from the CALS community using surveys, peer site assessment, and focus groups,” Braun said. “This resulted in an architecture that will allow for the seamless integration of additions as programs grow and departments get involved in web publishing.”
