Introducing the New SDSU NewsCenter
The newly redesigned NewsCenter and e-newsletter include new features and multimedia content, all designed to further visibility of the work and success of faculty, staff and students.
The Strategic Communications and Public Affairs team has introduced a newly refreshed NewsCenter website and e-newsletter, both designed to enhance user experience and accessibility while highlighting stories that celebrate the experiences and successes of students, faculty, staff and alumni.
NewsCenter is the central location for news and features about SDSU. Designed in partnership with colleagues in the Division of Information Technology, the newly redesigned site is aligned with the SDSU’s ongoing web alignment efforts and strategic plan priority to improve campus communications. The redesigned site features a modern, user-friendly design, improved navigation, new ways to access content and enhanced multimedia features.
It is the first major redesign of the site since 2012, and is also resulting in NewsCenter migrating into the university’s official content management system, Omni CMS, which is part of a multi-year initiative.
“A culture of news focusing on the work and success of our faculty, staff and students is essential for an informed and connected community. Our news site should be modern and easy to use to reflect that,” said La Monica Everett-Haynes, associate vice president for Strategic Communications and Public Affairs and Chief Communications Officer.
“Our teams within StratComm and with IT have spent months diligently preparing the site for enhanced news-reading and targeted user experience, focusing on contemporary design and improving accessibility,” Everett-Haynes said. “This will allow us to more easily share information with our on and off campus communities about major developments, achievements and the overall impact faculty, staff and students have in the lives of everyday people.”
In addition to the new site, the NewsCenter team launched a newly revamped e-newsletter, complete with new design elements and carefully curated content based on user feedback and interest from our readers.
“In our commitment to web accessibility and providing an improved experience for all readers, we have refined the navigation, introduced new layout features and intuitively organized the site content,” said Krista Nielsen, Senior Director of Digital Communications & Analytics. “The new site, along with a refreshed NewsCenter newsletter, illuminates relevant and timely news about our university community, highlighting our most compelling stories for readers to consume and share.”
