As the CAHNR school year begins, its many audiences and stakeholders have two redesigned and updated websites to help them with all things CAHNR. One site is for the College as a whole, and the other serves as an e-commerce store for CAHNR-related products.
“The overall mission of the CAHNR website is to offer a welcoming and easy-to-access front door to the College,” said Executive Assistant Sara Putnam, who represented CAHNR in the redesign process. The improved navigation connects users to the wide range of programs offered by the College.
For example, current and prospective students can quickly find a path to undergraduate or graduate student information from the top menu. And, CAHNR alumni are directed to a website specifically for them, which was redesigned at the same time as the main site. Everyone who comes to the website can read the latest Naturally@UConn blog postings, see current and historical images, get more information about upcoming events and connect to units, departments and offices from links on the homepage.
In addition to reaching students and graduates, the site aims to engage journalists, legislators and researchers. Putnam hopes the site will be useful in answering questions and distributing information about the College’s area of expertise to professional practitioners and members of the public, as well. (more…)
