UW Launches New, Improved Web Site
October 11, 2010 — The University of Wyoming today (Monday) launched a new official Web site that captures the university's branded image and showcases its projects, people and priorities.
The university's revamped Web site, at www.uwyo.edu, provides added functionality to address user needs -- including branded templates, enhanced security features and ADA compliance. Upgrades to the site, developed by the university's Institutional Marketing Department with assistance and support from the President's Office, Institutional Marketing Committee and Information Technology, will roll out in phases over the next several months with completion scheduled for fall 2011.
UW's brand is integrated throughout the Web site, publications and interactive media and supports President Tom Buchanan's vision and goals outlined in UP3, the university's planning document through 2014.
The new site also incorporates WyoAlumni, a powerful tool to connect UW constituents through social networking and groups, online directories and e-mail, and Tzolk'in, the university's new central calendaring system developed by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
"Our new institutional brand better reflects UW's energy and showcases our tremendous story and achievements for anyone looking at our Web site, the WyoAlumni site or Tzolk'in," says UW President Tom Buchanan.
Annually, UW's official Web site attracts about 54 million unique visitors.
