Located in Fond du Lac Wisconsin, Marian University is a Catholic liberal arts university offering undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs with more than 50 majors and minors. Following a rebranding initiative, Marian needed to update their website to reflect the new identity of the University as well as optimize the website to connect to existing and prospective students with as wide a reach as possible.
WSOL was brought in to provide a new visual design and rebuild the CMS infrastructure (including upgrading the site to Ektron 8.5) to take advantage of the features and functionality now available. In order to meet the accessibility requirements Marian requested, WSOL recommended building the website using Responsive Design methods allowing the site to be optimally viewed on a variety of devices.
The newly designed Marian website features a Responsive display that automatically adjusts for commonly found screen sizes with a single codebase and site template. Content authors are able to create content once and deliver to a range of browsing devices. The CMS platform was upgraded to the latest release of Ektron opening up a host of new functional elements and better performance.
