Published on July 15, 2016

Updates Include Improved Navigation, Streamlined Design and Event Focus

Today, the C. T. Bauer College of Business is launching a redesigned homepage. Users will notice improvements in the overall design of the homepage, including the image slideshow, top navigation menu and subpage headlines, in an effort to better showcase the college’s student, alumni, faculty and program successes. In addition to these stylistic changes, improvements and optimizations to the website’s underlying template have also been made.

Members of the college’s Office of Communications team led the project, with input from college faculty, staff, students and alumni along the way. Below, you can find more information about the specific improvements and where to find information on the redesigned

Top Navigation Bar

The new top navigation bar menu stays with you.

Need to quickly navigate the website? Now, the site’s top navigation bar (and a touch of UH red) stays with you as you scroll down the homepage.

The redesigned top navigation bar allows for easier access to every academic program and department web page in an organized format familiar to the audience. While no content has been removed from the menu, some links have been added or changed (See: Apply to UH under Academics, Inside Bauer+ under News & Events and Invest Now under Invest in Bauer, which now takes the audience directly to the online giving form). The college’s robust social media portfolio is also now emphasized here on the homepage, with four icon links to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.
