New Featured Profiles Pages

We have added some new content to sites that you may have noticed. The PR team has been working hard to add student profiles for each of the academic areas. OWS has added Featured Student pages to the Academic sites to showcase of the great students we have at UIS. You can add more featured students to your page as well!

Completion of website migration brings drastically improved site performance

The University of Illinois Springfield Office of Web Services launched a new website design on the Drupal content management system, and migrated from WordPress a year ago June 1st. The goal of the update was to modernize the look and feel of the site, improve sharing capability of content and content architecture, audit content for accessibility and usability issues, resolve security related issues, and the improve site performance. All of these factors improve site rank on search engines, and boost our web presence.
