Project >> Process

Nearing the end of the re.web project, the W&M Web Redesign Advisory Committee is already talking about sustainability. Aptly put by our partners at mStoner in a W&M Web Strategy Report they prepared in November 2007:
The reinvented going live in 2008 is the tip of the iceberg, as the College transitions from the idea that its web presence is not a project but an ongoing process.

At our April 11, 2008 meeting, the web redesign advisory committee endorsed a new governance structure for the W&M web. Key to that new structure will be a permanent W&M Web Advisory Committee (note we cleverly renamed it by dropping the "redesign"). The post-re.web advisory committee will be co-chaired by Mike Connolly (University Relations) and Susan Evans (IT).

As we evolve the current web redesign advisory committee, we'll increase the membership to more broadly represent the campus. We talked specifically about adding representatives from Administration, Arts & Sciences, Athletics, Business, Education, Law and VIMS. Also, student members will be undergraduate and graduate students. The Faculty Assembly will soon offer the names of three faculty members to serve on the permanent committee.

We'll keep you posted.
