Process and timeline

Spanning 12-15 months, the CALS Website Rethink project will involve three main phases for all sites currently within the CALS Drupal 7 Content Management System (CMS): discovery, design and development. 

We are committed to creating the new website together with thorough input and involvement from the CALS community and will be working very closely with CALS departments, units and assigned web editors across the project timeline. To best understand our needs, Primacy will spend time on our campus speaking with various stakeholders throughout the project, beginning in May 2018.

Gantt Chart outlining CALS Web Rethink Project milestones across the next 12-15 months, beginning with discovery (Summer 2018), design (Fall 2018-Spring 2019) and development (Spring 2019-Summer 2019), as well as other milestones for site content editors.

It’s important to note that the implementation of CALS’ new website doesn't stop at the end of this timeline. In fact, that’s really where it starts. Once we have a more intuitive website to express our college’s breadth and depth, we can truly begin to work together to tell the story of CALS' impact on New York state, the nation and the world.
