Improved and updated University website to come this fall

The University will have an updated website this fall, which will include a new home page and updated department sites, courtesy of the public affairs office and Computing and Information Services.


The site will have several features that will make navigating the Brown home page much easier, said Scott Turner, director of web communications. New additions will include gateways directed toward specific audiences, videos of current University news and a guide to upcoming events, he said.

The idea for a new Brown website began two years ago, when the Media Relations advisory council suggested that the site be improved and updated. The public affairs office and CIS took on the project.

Turner said the current site "didn't flow" and the new site will "meet the needs of the audience."


Marisa Quinn, vice president for public affairs and University relations, said that the new site will "capture the culture and distinction of Brown University" and that "the growing value of the Web" fueled the need for a more modern website.


The home page will be updated first, and the developers will then work with faculty to update the sites of each academic department, Turner said.


The development of the website has been publicized through the Brown University website redesign blog, which documents each update. The website developers have tried to make the project as open as possible by using the blog and test-runs of the new site to get user feedback, Turner said.
