Frequently Asked Questions

Academic Pages Redesign Project


    What is this project about?

    The Academic Pages Redesign Project refers to updates to all academic pages across the CSU-Pueblo website during Spring/Summer 2020. This consists of updates to college, department, and program pages.

    Why is this project a priority?

    This project will double the number of pathways to the university application while providing content that introduces program information in a more conversational manner than the university catalog.

    The CSU-Pueblo website analytics show the following:

    • 159 pages (including important student pages like Advising for CAE, Health Services, etc) require an average of 10+ clicks for visitors to get there
      • Tells us improvement on navigation overall is needed
    • MBA, Construction Management, Social Work, and academic resources (ex. career center) listed as least viewed pages
      • Tells us that top program web pages could be improved
    • Redesigned academic program pages listed as top pathways to CSU-Pueblo application
      • Tells us new templates have been successful in leading students to application

    How do I participate in this project?


    What sessions are we required to attend?

    Web editors are required to attend two training sessions: 

    • Content Support
      • This session covers six principles for writing for web as well as how to writeeach content section of program pages. By the end of the session, web editors will have rewritten content from their existing web pages and/or university catalog to bring to the Content Workshop.
    • Content Workshops
      • Our team will go over each content section of the program templates and assist editors (via live examples) on how to add content to academic pages. Editors will have time to add content to their assigned pages while administrators answer questions, provide feedback, and assist editors on specific issues.
