Cal State L.A.'s Web Site Named as 'Site of the Week'

Cal State L.A.’s Web site has been selected as the “Site of the Week” for the week beginning Monday, November 3, 2003, by EDUCAUSE—a nonprofit association whose mission is to advance higher education by promoting the intelligent use of information technology. A link to Cal State L.A.’s home page appears on the front page of the EDUCAUSE site.

The Cal State L.A. Web site is featured on the EDUCAUSE site during its annual conference, set for this week, November 4-7, in Anaheim, CA. In a recognition letter, EDUCAUSE cited Cal State L.A.’s Web page as being “well-designed, visually appealing, and easy to use.” It stated: “We acknowledge the breadth of our members by making selections that reflect a ‘best effort’ when viewed within the context of the likely resources available to their institution.”

Peter Quan, vice president of Information Technology Services (ITS), comments, “It’s an honor to have our campus Web site highlighted by EDUCAUSE and among peers in the field.” Quan continues, “Vice President Tony Ross and I would like to thank the Web Services Committee, the ITS Web Team, each one of the division Web teams, and those who participated in the pilot and evaluation groups. Special thanks go to Chris Kaufman and his team for their hard work the last few months.”

Launched on June 9, the newly redesigned CSULA Web site already had over one million hits during the first four months of its release. Chris Kaufman, manager of ITS user services, notes, “The new page represents a substantially new look for the University’s Web pages, providing a user-friendly environment and a consistent public image reflecting Cal State L.A.’s mission and values.”

Quan adds, “This recognition will not only give us a reason to celebrate, but also further challenge us to do even better in order to serve the needs of the campus.”
