UEA’s website and portal are being rebuilt – and the project team, led by ARM and ITCS, wants to hear your views.
The website and our microsites reinforce our reputation and demonstrates our strengths to prospective students, business partners and others by promoting UEA, our courses, our people and our research.
The portal is there to reinforce the UEA community as well as support staff in doing their jobs and students with their studies with easy to find services and relevant information.
In the meantime it's business as usual for our current website, so please carry on maintaining your pages and adhering to the guidelines you were given in Liferay training.
If you want to know more about what we're doing, please check out our FAQs. If you have a question not covered by our FAQs, please contact Joe Marshall
Your views are vital to help shape their future design and content, so a university-wide consultation begins this month to enable as many people as possible to contribute their views.
The team wants to hear how you use the sites, the information you’d like to see and the things you’d like to use them to do. We would be grateful if you could give us a few minutes of your time to complete a survey.
