HighEdWeb 2016 #UAD2: After Years of Delegation, Taking Back Control

Download to read offline

After years of delegating content to campus departments, an IA overhaul caused the Marketing and Communications department at Xavier University to rethink who maintains the content for key sites. The end result meant taking back control of many websites that for years had been maintained by academic departments and support offices. After a brief review of the overall project we will look at the sites we decided were too important to delegate, how we brought them back in, and the obstacles we have faced.
