UST's Web site design is being 'tweaked'

From Information Resources and Technologies

What’s happening?
As highlighted in the Bulletin Today, IRT has already transitioned many UST Web sites to Collage, our new content management system. One exciting step in this WebSPACE project is also to move our top level Web pages, which includes a subtle but important redesign to many of UST’s most visible Web pages.

On Monday, April 3, you will see the following improvements in the design and navigation of the UST Web site.

  • Universitywide navigation will be higher on the page to accommodate drop-down menus for local navigation; this will provide consistency in navigation among the top-level pages.
  • You will see design and color changes that create a more vivid presence and make navigation easier.
  • Many of the header graphics will have a new fresh look.
  • Home-page improvements include updated photos in the Flash introduction and a change in the main photo that will set the stage for a photo gallery.

What this means for you
Web pages that will look a little different on Monday, April 3, include:

  • About UST
  • Academics
  • Admissions
  • Administration
  • Alumni
  • Athletics
  • Libraries
  • Life @ UST
  • "Audience paths" – which includes Current Students, Prospective Students, Faculty/Staff, Alumni, Visitors

With the redesign of the UST Web site, it is important to note new and improved pages, as well as possible location (URL address) changes for some of the content on the Web pages listed above. The decisions for these changes were driven by user activity tracking through WebTrends and feedback from the community.

We hope you like the new Web pages and look forward to your input. If you have questions or concerns about this information, please contact the IRT Tech Desk by e-mail,, or phone, (651) 962-6230.
