Since you are in the CMS group, I was hoping you could advise me. UB is setting up a university-wide content management system and we are exploring what best practices other universities are doing. In particular, we are trying to identify universities that are:
* Using a CMS enterprise wide, or with several departments
* Have governance or policies in place
* Have a form of centralized staffing
* And hopefully are encouraging best practices in content and user experience.
If you can take the brief survey at https://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/8727g3fd23 (no longer than 2-5 minutes) it would help us gather preliminary information that will assist us in our initial phase of research. If you know of someone in your organization better suited to fill this out, please feel free to pass this along.
We are looking for initial responses by Thursday, October 15th.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or my assistant Kyriakos Zannikos (716-645-4652 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
Thanks in advance,
Web Strategist | UB Web Team Leader

I replied to this thread on the uweb site but thought I would comment again here. My flight to eduWeb gets in to PHL on Sunday a little earlier than yours. I would be extremely grateful if I could catch a ride with you from the airport since you will have a car. I'll be happy to contribute to gas or at least treat you to beverages (adult or otherwise) once we get to AC. Thank you!
How are you? It's Val from Innovative Educators. How's the Iowa gig? Wondering if you have any suggestions or if you would be interested in presenting at our conference this summer. We're looking for someone to discuss the future of online student services with regards to retention. We want a great speaker who can inspire people and give people a realistic picture as to where things are headed. Thoughts? Hope all is well, Val
