GC Website Redesign Project
The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) is working to modernize and optimize its website to further the strategic goals of the institution as detailed in Building for the Future: The Graduate Center Strategic Plan 2017-2022.
The project is being led by the Office of Communications and Marketing, and will be conducted in partnership with a web design/development firm with expertise in higher education.
The Key Objectives of this project are:
- to enhance The Graduate Center’s reputation through a sophisticated, visually-engaging website that showcases our serious academic programs and pioneering research, is accessible to all (mobile-responsive and ADA-compliant) and supports the goals of The Graduate Center strategic plan.
- to provide functionality and transparency for internal processes and operations for the GC community, including current existing website functionality and desired functionality.
Current Content Development Initiatives
The Core Team is working with academic programs to prepare for the migration period to the new site. Current content is being reviewed, re-organized to fit a more uniform page structure, and other updates to improve the user experience.
Faculty Profile Updates
Faculty are being asked to review their current Graduate Center profiles and submit any updates needed. The web team will then make requested changes to their current Kentico profiles in preparation for the migration.
Note that in the new Drupal website, each faculty will have one profile (instead of the current Kentico setup of one profile per program). Any submitted updates will be made in Kentico to the faculty’s primary program profile and any other profiles will be redirected to that primary profile so that the faculty member’s profile is in order for the migration to the new site.
Requests for updates can be made via the Faculty Profile Update Form, which is being distributed by program. If faculty members would like to request the form earlier, please email us at email@example.com.
