New Trinity Web site launches on February 16
The newly redesigned College Web site,
www.trincoll.edu, is scheduled to go live to the public on Monday,
February 16. Members of the Trinity community will have a chance to
browse the site before it launches, during the week of February 9.
The site redesign project was started last April, and is a joint
effort of the Communications Office and the Computing Center.
Generation, a collaborative partnership of Web consulting, research,
and design firms, was retained to develop a new information
architecture and navigation map, as well as an effective site design.
An inclusive feedback process was established to gather input from key
users across campus, from senior management and trustees to
representatives from most of the academic departments and
The design incorporates several new features, including audience
gateway links with easy access to frequently visited pages for
specific audiences (prospective and current students, alumni, parents,
community, faculty and staff), and two distinctive theme areas—Living
and Learning at Trinity and Urban/Global Connections. Intended for
prospective students, these themes showcase the College’s liberal arts
education, urban programs, and global learning opportunities through
Trinity students’ own experiences.
The new site also utilizes a Content Management System (CMS) that
allows users to enter and update content easily through a Web browser
interface. This will significantly reduce the maintenance and updating
issues that have been a concern with the current site.
To build awareness of the February 16 launch and of the new site
features, particularly the audience gateway pages for current students
and for faculty and staff, the Communications Office will hold an
on-line contest from February 16 through February 20, with prizes that
include a digital camera and a television. Information tables will
also be set up during lunchtime (12:00–1:00 p.m.) in front of the Cave
Bookstore in Mather Hall on February 16 and in front of the Hamlin
Hall dining room on February 18. Faculty, staff, and students are
encouraged to stop by the information tables to find out more about
the new site and to receive a surprise gift.
