Many roles are critical for the successful rollout and sustained evolution of a website, especially one with as many content contributors and managers as Ithaca.edu.

Many roles are critical for the successful rollout and sustained evolution of a website, especially one with as many content contributors and managers as Ithaca.edu. It's a continually evolving thing, including developers, designers, data analysts, directors, plus all of you.

Here's an overview of the key staff members who are part of this massive undertaking.

There are also two external partners who have played a significant role in helping make this project a success:

  • beyond: a web design and planning agency that has helped us with research, design, and reimagining how the new site could look and function.
  • Four Kitchens: a web development agency that is helping building the code for a future-proof, flexible site.

In addition, there are over 300 faculty and staff that use our content management system and play a role in shaping our site. We are continuously looking at their data and asking them for feedback and assistance with testing.

Of course, the team is much broader than this list — colleagues and partners from across campus and from multiple divisions and offices have advised, assisted, informed, and participated in workshops and trainings, with many more to come. Including a variety of perspectives and needs is critical to the project's success, leaving no person or group excluded from the process who wishes to be involved.

We look forward to reaching out soon, and continually, with updates and calls for feedback or collaboration. Please watch for these kinds of messages from us in the coming weeks and months and email us at web@ithaca.edu if you'd like to make sure your voice is heard in getting things done the best ways possible.

Thanks to all the Ithaca College community for your previous, ongoing, and future help. Together, we'll build a better web experience for all.
