The interactive communications team has scheduled an audit for each office and department to be completed according to the following schedule. If you would like to send in revisions prior to the audit, please use the web support request form and submit them prior to the audit start date. On the audit start date, our team will be systemmatically going through all requests through emails or tickets to ensure all are complete.
The new site is attracting a good response from prospective students and parents, which was one of our stated goals. However, it has also created disruptions in campus business, and we're working to address these as quickly as possible once they're known.
The media relations team acts as a direct liaison between Grinnell College and both print and broadcast media. Staff issue news releases, communicate Grinnell news and information to media outlets, and facilitate student/faculty interaction with the press.

The launch of the new and improving Grinnell.edu is a chance to rethink how we "do the web." It's a chance for us all to reevaluate our sites and take the time to make them what we've always wanted.
