Strategy update; summary of findings

by in , , , , 0

The blog has been quiet, but only because we've been doing a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes in preparation for the next phase of our project, which will continue into fall 2012.

Our partners at Stamats came to campus on May 2 and 3 to meet with students, faculty, and other key campus stakeholders. During their visit, the Stamats team met with 46 students, faculty and staff to discuss their perceptions of the University and their needs and concerns about the CI web site.

Since their visit, the Core Team has been working closely with Stamats to review their findings and to refine the strategies and vision that will shape both this refresh project as well as the University's strategy for web communication for the next several years. The findings and recommendations have been documented in detail in a 73-page strategic brief.

We are very pleased to share a 5-page summary of the findings, in PDF format (219KB) (to view, download Adobe Acrobat Reader). The findings and corresponding recommendations affect so many areas of the University, so it's important that this new vision is shared, discussed and embraced by the University community.

We'd love to answer any questions you have regarding the vision, findings, and recommendations as described in the summary. Please post your questions or comments here, or email them to Peter Mosinskis at

The Core Team is continuing to work with Stamats on scheduling for the next phase of the refresh process, during which Stamats, the Core Team and select stakeholders will work to review and develop an updated information architecture for the University web site. More about information architecture in our next post.
