Working With Us
The Department of Web Communications is ready to partner with you to build your website in the templates and content management system. Working with our office is easy; we follow the steps below to ensure your site’s construction is executed efficiently and accurately.
1. Request Assistance via Project Request Form
Complete this short form to secure your place in the website queue.
2. Set Up Meeting
Once the Project Request Form is received, the Web Communications team will contact you within 48 hours to set up a meeting.
3. Web Audit and Review
Before your initial meeting takes place, the Web Communications team will audit your site and research what your colleagues are doing, if applicable. We ask that you also review your site and prepare a list of other websites that you find useful and effective.
4. Meet and Discuss
At the initial meeting, the Web Communications team will brief you on the new templates and content management system. We will then review your site together and discuss any technical issues that would involve our colleagues in LTS.
5. Template and Navigation Map
After the meeting, you select your desired homepage template and determine your navigation. Once final, send this information to Web Communications.
6. Set Up Skeleton
A member of the Web Communications team will set up the skeleton of your site based on the information you provided in step 5.
Once the skeleton of your site is created, your site editor(s) will be trained in the content management system by a member of Web Communications.
8. Site Build-Out by Client
Once you have been trained, you are ready to build and edit your new site in the content management system. Web Communications provides as much help as you need to ensure the process flows smoothly.
9. Testing of New Site
Once the site is complete, it is tested and reviewed by the Web Communications team.
10. Cutover and Launch
In this final step, Web Communications asks LTS to launch your site. At this time your old site is archived, and your new site goes live.
