This visual design of the Dartmouth home page and home site—which includes about 80 pages at the top level of Dartmouth’s website—launched on November 16, 2012. The improvements represent the first phase of a major upgrade of Dartmouth’s public web presence, which was last redesigned in 2006.
The project’s second phase in spring term 2013 includes new content and structure for the home site and the launch of four Arts & Sciences academic departments in the new design (English, Economics, Biological Sciences, and the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric). That phase also includes the implementation of new technology and utilities, including a new publishing platform (content management system), campus map, and event calendar.
Following the spring launch, the third phase of the project will focus on the migration of department, program, and center websites into the new design and publishing platform. The entire Dartmouth.edu landscape includes thousands of microsites and more than 100,000 pages.
