In the fall of 2020, Old Dominion University launched the Website Redesign Project (WRP) to develop a new University website that would provide a better experience for all site visitors and users. Last spring, the University gathered feedback from the Monarch community on the current website to gain a more holistic understanding of visitor needs and expectations.
Since then, the WRP team has worked to implement this feedback and create a website that is modern, accessible and offers a cohesive user experience that will allow the University to better tell the Monarch story to the world.
Over the past 12 months, the WRP team has completed the Research and Discovery Phase and the Design Phase. The University is excited to announce that the Development Phase is almost complete and the initial launch for the website is set for mid-July.
In the coming months, regular communications will be sent to keep the Monarch community up-to-date on the status of this project as we quickly move toward the exciting go-live of our Wave 1 pages.
Here's what you can do to prepare for the launch:
Review the phases and timeline, migration/wave plan, and FAQ page on the WRP website.
If you are a department head, confirm designated Content Managers in your area have signed up for the Content Manager Training Information Session. (A link was sent to all Content Managers by email on May 3.)
