UIS and the Office of External Affairs and Communications are collaborating on a Digital Presence Strategy for the University. The strategy focuses on how the University can evolve its approach to governance, user experience and technology to better support and enhance University websites and the experience of those that use them.

So far, hundreds of web editors have started contributing towards a list of requirements, as well as sharing tools and guidance to assist us in auditing what we've currently got, and pilot projects have begun to explore ways of doing things differently.

An experimental SharePoint site has been launched to pull together resources for people helping with the user experience/content part of the strategy:


UPDATE: The Digital Presence Strategy was approved by the Information Services Committee (ISC) in October 2019 and approval and budget for the implementation plan was granted in November 2019.
