I’m the Web editor at a private, liberal arts college of approximately 4,000 students. I work in College Relations and have been managing the Web site for over 6 years. Until now, we did not have an IT person dedicated to helping me maintain our external site, but the College just hired for this newly-created position.
As we are in the midst of a total redesign/refresh, I’m trying to make a case for another Web staff member in College Relations. I’m doing almost all of the content management by myself and would welcome the opportunity to move toward a more global, strategic perspective in managing the site and have someone else be able to assist with the day-to-day updating. This is especially important since we are considering centralizing our content management.
I'd like to get a sense from folks in the marketing/communications areas who maintain your schools' Web sites what your roles and titles are, and approximately how many staff members manage your Web site.
Just looking for a little ammo to plead my case. :) Thanks so much!
