Subject: Wesleyan’s New Web Site

Dear Members of the Wesleyan Community,

Tomorrow, University Communications and ITS will launch the redesigned Wesleyan University homepage, Admission web site, and several major landing pages (About, Academics, Campus Life, Alumni, Parents, and Offices & Services). At this time, these are the only pages that will be changed to the new look. This begins a major transformation of the Wesleyan web site that is expected to continue throughout 2010. All departments and sub-pages will be converted to the new design and content management system (CMS) over the coming 12–18 months.

The new design features significant improvements in navigation and content presentation. Also, the new Cascade content management system promises new capability within your department to develop, maintain and update content on your pages. ITS is pleased with the performance of this new system and we think you will be pleased, also. If you need help with navigation, please use the Search Box at the upper right portion of the screen.

We invite you to check the ‘From the Community’ section of the homepage. This new feature offers content from the new Wesleyan Community Blog. Anyone with a Wesleyan username and password is welcome to post and comment. Check it out at!

Join us in making Wesleyan’s online presence open, vibrant, and engaging.

  1. I know that the home page is directed at prospective students and donors, but I’m concerned that there is no link to the library’s web site on the page, unless you click on the Show navigation bar arrow, where a Library link is under About. (Thanks to Mark Bailey for pointing out the link; I was looking under Academics and so missed the link completely.)
    I understand that the library web page is one of the most frequently used of all Wesleyan’s pages; this justifies, I think, either putting a link on the home page itself, or under Academics.
