New Graduate College website puts graduate education resources at students' fingertips
Arizona State University's Graduate College has launched its new website: graduate.asu.edu. The redesigned website features improved functionality, easy access to essential information for the ASU community and a more streamlined and engaging look, which includes a new video experience.
The Graduate College is a full-service resource for current students, graduate faculty and staff at ASU. The new website focuses on raising awareness of the programs and services the college provides to improve the graduate school experience for all.
“It was very important to us that the new website accomplished two things,” said Alfredo J. Artiles, dean of the Graduate College. “We want everyone to be aware of the programs and services we offer the ASU community and we want to make sure people can find what they need as quickly and as easily as possible.”
The new website navigation is audience focused to make it easy for prospective and current students, postdoctoral fellows and ASU faculty and staff to find the policies, support programs and tools they are looking for. New landing pages display the information most frequently searched for by site visitors helping them quickly access crucial resources.
Prospective students visiting the website can see a series of student impact stories, as well as a new video, “The Promise of Graduate Education at ASU,” showing how ASU prepares graduate students to engage the complex issues of our globalized society that contribute to the economic, social, cultural and overall well-being of their communities.
The new “Current Students” section enables student success by providing up-to-date information on deadlines and policies, demystifying the requirements needed for degree completion. Current students will also find the latest information on funding, mentoring and professional development programs.
Faculty and staff
The intuitive navigation makes it easier for ASU faculty and staff to find best practices, policies, tools like iPOS, forms and how-to documentation for academic progress, student advising and curriculum development.
Housed within the Graduate College, the Postdoctoral Affairs Office has a new microsite dedicated to the success and professional development of postdoctoral scholars at ASU. Postdocs can register for upcoming professional and social events — part of an effort to build a more supportive community for postdocs at ASU.
“We encourage everyone to visit the new website and explore the programs and services provided by the Graduate College,” Artiles said.
