Cal Poly Pomona has launched a redesigned website that showcases dramatic photos from the university’s identity campaign, highlights campus success stories, improves navigation and updates the look and feel.
The new design, which was spearheaded by I&IT Web Development with assistance from Public Affairs, makes it easier for students, prospective students, faculty and staff, alumni and friends to find information tailored to their interests. In addition, the academics and administration tabs allow users to quickly find specific colleges, departments and other resources. Popular sites, such as BroncoDirect, Blackboard and Email, are located at the top right of the page.
Later during fall quarter, plans will be finalized for applying the new look to other Cal Poly Pomona web pages.
“It’s been seven years since the last major redesign, and the Web is always changing,” says Curtis Clark, director of I&IT Web Development. “This clean, new design both showcases the university and helps visitors quickly find the information they’re looking for.”
Other changes include:
- Rotating images from the identity campaign show off Cal Poly Pomona’s approach to education and the multifaceted ways students learn.
- The A-to-Z Guide, a new feature, compiles links to important information.
- Future students, current students, faculty and staff, alumni and friends, and community and visitors can immediately go to customized pages tailored to their needs. The pages provide answers to frequently asked questions and link to popular web pages.
- The university’s mission statement has a prominent place on the site. The page explains Cal Poly Pomona’s vision, core values and learning outcomes.
- The “About Cal Poly Pomona” page provides a quick primer on the university’s history, academic programs and campus life. It also includes quick facts, such as the average enrollment, annual fees and address.
- The “Today” section makes it easy for visitors to find out whether classes are in session.
- The “Broncos” section shares success and inspirational stories of individuals or groups on campus.
