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
University Communications, University at Buffalo
