Creating a New On-line Presence
Long Island University has entered an exciting new technological era with the development of a state-of-the-art Web site, the first phase of which is slated to be launched during the summer of 2009. The project is being led by the in-house University Relations Marketing Services team and by BigBad, a Boston-based firm that has developed sites for higher education clients including Harvard University, College of the Holy Cross, Smith College, Simmons College, MIT, Tufts University, Middlebury College, Saint Anselm College, Providence College, Fairfield University, Trinity College and Rhodes College, in addition to the John F. Kennedy Library, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and flight and technology pioneers, Pratt & Whitney.
Gearing up for the Future
As communications shift to electronic media, the University has undertaken this important initiative to better serve current and prospective students, parents, faculty members, alumni and staff; to enhance its overall communications programs; and to position itself in rapidly evolving and expanding higher education markets.
Conveying all that we have to Offer
The new site design will reflect the breadth and depth of the University and all it has to offer, while engaging the user through a more personalized navigational approach. Utilizing the flexibility of
a new content management system, individuals will have the ability to browse generally, or to focus on their particular area of interest. Inspirational stories of students, faculty members and alumni will help to bring the Long Island University experience to life and will illustrate its mission of access and excellence – educating students from all walks of life.
Working as a Team
To ensure that the University is building the most effective Web site possible, an extensive discovery process has been completed, which has resulted in the development of a comprehensive strategy and implementation plan. Many faculty members, administrators and students were involved in this process and their input has been incorporated into the site design. We thank all of those who participated in this very important undertaking – one that will clearly define the way in which the University moves forward in a changing world.
We encourage you to be a part of this exciting project by visiting this site for periodic updates and progress reports. As we move closer to the launch date, we anticipate the ability to provide previews of the new design and its enhanced features.
