UMD Website

Dear Campus Community:

Tomorrow as you log on to the UMD website (d.umn.edu) you will notice some big changes. The homepage will feature a new design that showcases UMD programs, people, places, and events, while making it easy for prospective students to explore and apply.

Here are some of the improvements:

· A feature area will highlight timely, interesting, and important activities and information in an engaging, concise way.

· Different types of prospective students will have direct links to apply to UMD.

· The colleges and schools, undergraduate majors, and graduate programs will have direct links from the home page.

· A photo gallery will feature the unique beauty of the UMD campus.

· Calendar events and news articles will also be featured on the homepage.

The full rollout of the design will take several months because of the significant number of internal pages. Updated headers and footers will be available to departments for testing soon. Admissions web pages will get updated first. Other high impact pages will follow.

You may check out the website redesign blog for more information. This will be the primary vehicle for comments, questions, and updates going forward.

Thank you to everyone who is participating in the process of implementing these important, much anticipated changes.
