UI launches redesigned home page

The University of Iowa has launched a redesigned home page, the front door to its presence on the World Wide Web.

Located at, the new home page keeps pace with changes in technology since its last overhaul in 2003. Its organization, visual appearance, and underlying technology are designed to facilitate easy navigation, showcase regularly changing content, and evolve as needed.

The page features images of university life, news and events headlines updated daily, profiles of UI people developed as part of the university's "Be remarkable" campaign, and menus that connect visitors with the more than a million web pages maintained by UI colleges, departments, and programs. All told, UI web pages draw more than one billion visits each month.

Staff from the Office of University Relations developed the home page in partnership with an advisory group from across campus, consulting widely with students, faculty, staff, and others.

Also part of the project are revamped "second-level" pages located one click away from the home page, providing additional links that guide users further into the university's web space.
