In its ongoing effort to maintain compatibility across the digital landscape, Upper Iowa University has announced the launch of its redesigned website. Online visitors, including future UIU students, are now discovering a friendlier, easier-to-navigate webpage at uiu.edu.
“This yearlong initiative brought a web advisory team together with the talented team at Paskill, Stapleton and Lord, a firm with significant experience in design and higher education,” Dr. Karl Easttorp, UIU executive director of communications and marketing, said. “The design is easier to use, cleaner in its presentation and navigation, and generates an even more mobile-friendly site.”
Designed to provide easier navigation across all platforms, UIU officials are confident that both the internal and external audiences will find the new site more attractive and simpler to retrieve information. Future undergraduate and graduate students will discover all things academia are right at their fingertips. Meanwhile, current students, faculty, and staff can find the majority of their required resources under one button.
“Our goal is to make it less complicated for prospective students to quickly find information focused on their personal choice for a UIU learning experience,” Andrew Wenthe, UIU vice president for external affairs, said. “Consequently, the design lets prospective students quickly discover the primary entry point to the information they need the most in making a college decision. In addition, the website better reflects our UIU community, program offerings, student services, mission, vision and values that go into a prospective student’s decision on attending UIU.”
Upper Iowa University is a private, nonprofit university providing undergraduate and graduate degree programs to about 5,200 students-nationally and internationally-at its Fayette, Iowa, campus, 21 U.S. locations in Arizona, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, Wisconsin, as well as a location in Hong Kong.
The previous redesign of the UIU website occurred in the winter of 2016. Website content will be frequently updated and enhanced as University services and technology continually evolve. For additional information about UIU, visit the new website at uiu.edu.
