Website Best Practices

  • Keep your information current. Refresh language regular and remove past calendar items.
  • Use images that are relevant and reflect your program’s values and priorities.
  • Emphasize your strengths and achievements – not just of staff and faculty – but of students and alumni too.
  • Make it easy for viewers to view the information you’re sharing.
  • Remember, the fewer the clicks to find the information, the better! Follow the path they have to take to get to the information. Do they have to leave your site to find the information? Avoid bouncing the user around to get the information they need.
  • Develop content that will get “likes” and “shares.” Ideally, pages on your website can and should be shared on social media.
