University Website Redesign Update – April 2023

Dear Campus Community,

We’d like to share an update on the progress the Office of Communications and Marketing is making toward the redesigned university website.


We are excited to move into Phase 3 and begin work on wireframes for the new site. A wireframe is a visual guide that represents the framework of a website. It is similar to how a floor plan shows the structure and layout of a house. A wireframe does not include design (such as color, font, or imagery) but shows the overall structure of a webpage. As mentioned in our previous campus email, we are working with a higher education expert, OHO Interactive, and they are providing feedback and insight for our wireframes.

Focus Groups and Feedback

We look forward to sharing the wireframes with the campus community. This will be a chance for you to hear more about our plans and provide feedback. We will share information about these opportunities soon.

Survey for WordPress Editors

We recently sent out a survey to our WordPress users who have access to edit a site. We are working with OHO to review the survey results so we can learn about ways to improve user roles and capabilities, as we will have enhanced user roles with the new site.

Website Content Audits

The website includes more than 180 sites and nearly 7,000 pages. We continue to work with departments to review and update their website content. To better support departments, we are scheduling meetings with editors to expedite the review process and determine what edits are needed. Learn more about the content audit process and how you can get started.

We know how important the website is in helping future and current students learn more about UA Little Rock, and we are appreciative to the many faculty and staff who have been working with us to make sure their sites are providing updated and relevant information.

Recently completed sites:

School of Education
Rhetoric and Writing
Theatre Arts
Blackboard Student Support

We appreciate your support during this process. The university redesign site has additional information about how to get started reviewing your site and our Project Blog also includes some helpful tips and updates.

Thank you and Go Trojans!
