Web Advisory Council
The Office of Media and Marketing, in partnership with campus University Information Technology Services, has created a Web Advisory Council to offer feedback, set priorities, and provide other guidance and support to the teams responsible for developing and maintaining the IU Kokomo web space. The members were selected due to their understanding of the uses and impact of the campus website and their ability to bring detailed knowledge and experience to this advisory process.
The group is expected to meet quarterly the first year, 2013, and then biannually thereafter. The Council's contributions to our campus website planning and policies will have a substantive impact on marketing, recruitment, communication, and IU Kokomo image development. We appreciate the Council's willingness to serve our campus in this important capacity.
