Message from the Renewal Project Team

With more than 5.5 million unique visits and almost 60 million total page views over the past year, is the university’s primary public-facing web platform for communicating with prospective and current students, external partners, faculty and staff, alumni, and community members. As you may have seen via Dal News, a multi-year project to improve is currently in the planning phase and we want to hear the perspective of our valued research faculty and staff to help us shape its future! 

On Tuesday, February 2nd from 9 – 10am our Digital Marketing Team will be hosting a Renewal Project Information & Engagement Session specifically for those involved in research at Dal. Click this link to join the meeting. The meeting will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams and recorded so that anyone who isn’t able to attend can have access to it afterward.

We are excited to share more project details, explain why it matters to the research community, and gather insight directly from you on how a refreshed website might better serve your research-driven communication needs.

The agenda will include:

  • A brief presentation about the Renewal Project
  • Q & A
  • An interactive engagement activity to allow attendees to participate and contribute their thoughts and ideas. 

We have already hosted sessions for each academic faculty, several large non-academic stakeholder groups, and a series open to all Dal faculty and staff, to provide ample opportunity for engagement during this initial round of consultation. Student engagement efforts are also in the works for this winter.

Your participation in this early phase is critical to helping us identify key considerations, challenge assumptions, and inform the path forward. You are also encouraged to email any questions or comments about the renewal of to the project team.
