We've determined this would be a good time reevaluate the standard web header and footer that we require for all UofM websites. The issue is how.We've made decisions in the past about what links go in the header and footer based on what kinds of items are globally useful. Simple enough.

Columbia College site redesigned - take a look!

It also used internal back office terminology that was confusing to prospects.Our charge was to gear the site toward prospective students and to move all content for current students and faculty & staff behind our existing portal.We…See More
