Your input is needed for Laurierís website renewal process
Wilfrid Laurier University has begun a website renewal process to develop a new institutional website that will feature state-of-the-art functionality and a fresh design based on Laurierís new visual identity.
The renewal process involves two key phases. The first, which begins this fall, is a consultation/research phase to assess the website needs of the Laurier community and to survey current state-of-the-art web design and technology. The second phase is the development of the new website, which will be based on the information gathered in the first phase and will begin in early 2013.
Your input is essential. An organization as diverse as a university requires a website capable of accommodating a wide range of functionality. In order to understand your particular needs, we encourage you to share your thoughts and suggestions with us. An online forum for you to post comments is open and will remain open until Nov. 30.

To help us with this consultation and research, Laurier has hired mStoner Inc., an experienced web-strategy firm that specializes in post-secondary education. Representatives from mStoner will visit Laurier Nov. 13, 14, and 15 to meet with specific user groups, such as faculties and administrative departments. These groups will be sent an invitation in the next couple of days. Also, individuals from all Laurier community locations are invited to attend one of four open sessions:
- Faculty and staff: Tuesday, Nov. 13, 3:45 to 5:00 p.m. in Room 203-205 of the Athletic Complex.
- Students and student leaders: Wednesday, Nov. 14, 4:00 to 5:15 p.m. in the Paul Martin Centre.
- Faculty and staff: Thursday, Nov. 15, 10:15 to 11:30 a.m. in CB100.
- Students and student leaders: Thursday, Nov. 15, 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. in CB100.
Please RSVP to Janine Dietrich, firstname.lastname@example.org indicating which open session you will be attending.
Additionally, members of the Laurier community are invited to leave comments on an online forum. The forum is open until Nov. 30. You can also email your comments or questions to: email@example.com.
