What to expect from the new home page

We promise we’ll post some sneak peeks soon, but in the meantime, we thought it would be a good idea to share our goals for the site and give users an idea of what will be different about the new home page – and what will be the same.

Three main objectives for the new VCU home page:

  1. Recruit new students (of all levels)
  2. Help create a culture of giving
  3. Continue to serve the needs of current students, faculty and staff

What will be the same:

  • Specific resource pages for current students and faculty/staff
  • Easy-to-access links to popular tools (myVCU, email, Blackboard, etc.)
  • News and events to keep you informed about what’s going on across the university
  • Lots of visuals
  • Mobile-friendly design

What will be different:

  • A more streamlined navigation (less links)
  • Easier-to-use resource pages for current students and faculty/staff
  • More content and calls-to-action for prospective students; admissions will now be a section within the home page rather than three separate sites for undergraduate, graduate and international
  • More robust student life and academics content
