Refocusing on the student
Thanks to the lengthy and diligent work of the web strategy committee, the University of Alaska Southeast has a new regional and student focused website. Students, both prospective and current, are the primary audience of our website. The website redesign accomplishes three main goals:
- projects a broader UAS brand encompassing three campuses
- focuses the content on student needs
- includes responsive design for mobile and tablet devices.
Read more about the redesign from the CMS help site.
The UAS homepage now represents all three campuses in Juneau, Ketchikan, and Sitka. From the homepage users can easily access individual campus homepages where they will find useful information like current events, news and calendar items.
In order to accommodate mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, “University of Alaska Southeast” and “Learn Engage Change” does not appear under the whale tale graphic. However, the official logo has not changed for any other uses, including posters. Questions? Please see our logo graphic standards guidelines.
Faculty and Staff Page Has Moved
Under our new website navigation, Faculty and Staff pages and the Employee Directory are now located under the “Explore” tab on the far left top bar.
