Website Redesign Project

As Radford University enters its second century, it has embarked on a project to reimagine its web presence. A University Web Strategy and Interactive Media team housed within Information Technology has been formed to support this vital project.

The Radford University website serves a variety of audiences and is often the first impression prospective students, parents, faculty and staff have of the institution. The community, state and national legislators, the media, alumni, donors and other constituents also visit and form ideas about the campus based on what they find. Additionally, the site is a daily part of the lives of the campus community.

The website redesign project seeks to create a consistent image for Radford University. Through words, images, site architecture, colors, fonts and key messages, the site will reflect who we are to its many audiences.
