Communication colleagues,

I am happy to inform you about the University’s redesigned home page which
will launch at the end of this month. University Relations has been working
diligently to create a virtual face that best meets the needs of the
University's stakeholders including students, donors and alumni, faculty,
staff, and more. Considerable analysis of best practices and current trends
as well as ongoing usage and behavior of the current site were used to
develop the new design.

The new home page will deliver a customized experience by allowing
individuals to self-select an "audience view." The University of Minnesota
will be a leader in the field of higher education by meeting the growing
expectations of website visitors to identify the type of information they

The new home page will launch by June 1. There will be a "Tell Us What You
Think" link in the lower right corner. Please take a moment to share your
feedback once the site is live. We value your input!

Thank you,

Ann Aronson
