The Lenoir-Rhyne University Web Redesign Project

Content, Content and More Content

The Marketing and Communications team is deep in the final weeks of content writing and editing for the new website. We are working to finalize content that will begin to be migrated to the new website starting the week of May 17 through June 30.

We are maintaining an aggressive project timeline in order to launch the new website in early August. We hope to have a small window of time in July where programs, offices and departments can review the website and submit suggested edits to content.

Once the new website is launched, our work doesn’t end. it is just the beginning. We will continue to write and edit content and work with faculty and staff across LR to make content changes on the new website over the fall semester.

Ongoing Site Development

Much of the web project work has been occurring in tandem with content writing. For example, our static HTML pages were finished in March and interior template integration within our Drupal content management system is scheduled to be done in mid-May (it’s currently finishing up quality assurance testing). Homepage development started in mid-April and is scheduled to finish in mid-June.

We are excited to also have our site style and design guide delivered to us this month.
