Website rollout set to launch July 29

by University Communications,

Dear Willamette Community,

Due to the longer than anticipated move of nearly 40,000 web pages, the launch of the new site has been pushed back to July 29. To ensure that this date is met, we’ve added additional resources to assist with the transition, including staff from our strategic partner, Barkley REI, and members of the Willamette community. Thanks to everyone for your work and patience as we make our renewed website a reality.

The Monday, July 27 edition of the Bearcat Bulletin will include more specifics on training dates/times and an update on the exact timing of our website rollout. WebEdit is still available to make edits to the current website until Friday, July 24 — though we request you save any non-essential updates for the new site once it launches. If you have any questions about making updates to your current website, please contact Web Development at webdev@willamette.edu.

Remember that the launch of our new website is the beginning of an exciting process to update and improve our content and utilize its powerful new communication tools. We look forward to ongoing conversations to introduce the new features of the website and assist with implementation.

Onward,

Website Renewal Core Team
