Welcome to the New Dashboard

A Message to the University Community
From Eric Owsley, Director of Digital Strategy

Hello and welcome to the new dashboard. Here are five key things to know about the new page:

  1. We've added a global navigation header matching the top-level links found on every other page of the Washington and Lee University website.
  2. We've made the "notices" section aware of your role as an employee, student or parent and have added additional departmental announcements to category-based groupings, ensuring that content will always be new and relevant.
  3. The new page is built on a platform that will -- in the not too distant future -- allow for single-sign-on and true intranet capabilities, giving additional access to services and information tailored to you.
  4. The new page is extensible, meaning we can add new sections as needs arise without having to worry about space constraints or page load limits.
  5. We'll have more accurate and meaningful page usage statistics to help identify the most important and frequently accessed items for each audience. That data will be used to make refinements to the page over time.

As with any new website, ensuring compatability with computer operating systems, browsers and screen sizes is an important quality assurance measure. If you see something amiss on your screen, please let us know. Send your feedback by email to Eric Owsley.

Useful Tips and Suggestions

  1. Make use of the customized quicklinks at the top of the page. Looking for the lengthy list of links to offices and services? Instead of scrolling or navigating to the bottom of the page each time, select your favorites and let them display at the top of the page. Note: If a link you need is not listed, let Eric know.
  2. The content in the "notices" and "events" sections is only as good as the community makes it. These sections are populated by Campus Notices. Make sure your official announcements and event promotions are advertised in Campus Notices.
    Note: If you don't know how to post to Campus Notices or you don't have the correct permissions to do so on behalf of your department, let Steve know.
  3. Hold departments accountable. If hours of operation or eatery menu items are incorrect, let the department know.
