Preview of Georgetown’s New Website Now Online
A preview of Georgetown University's new website is now available for viewing at beta.georgetown.edu.
The new site includes a redesigned homepage and "top tier" pages that are highly trafficked and which provide a broad range of information about the entire university. University Information Services has implemented a new technical infrastructure to support the site.
This is the first time the university's website has undergone a redesign since 2002.
"The new website structure, design and content reflects feedback from our board of directors, students, faculty, staff, alumni and prospective students and parents," says Julie Bataille, associate vice president for communications. "We hope to use the next few weeks to familiarize the community with the new site and make additional enhancements to further optimize user experience. I am especially grateful to our Guide Committee and many others throughout the university who have provided input to our work."
The purpose of the preview site is to allow members of the Georgetown community to provide feedback before the new site goes "live," which is currently scheduled for Dec. 3. Comments about the site can be posted to the blog or sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Until the formal launch of the site, search results will not include the content in the new site. So any searches made before that date will only bring up links in the current university site. The project will not affect core systems related to benefits, course registration or academic systems such as MyAccess.
