University Communication's Web team is responsible for administration and maintenance of the more than 250 Wesleyan websites built on our web content management system, Cascade.  In addition to the web maintenance and development responsibilities, the team also monitors the university site for ADA web compliance, helps with search engine optimization (SEO), leads our responsive design and mobile-first strategy, and provides detailed analytics to university staff as requested. 

The Communication Web team also provides support and guidance to Administrative Departments for their department websites including managing web editor (personnel) access, building new web components, and offering training to administrative web editors on Cascade through Success at Wes.

If you have a question about your website or need to report an issue, please complete the online UC Request Form with the details of your web project/issue and submit it to the Office of Communications. For project requests, please allow 2 - 3 weeks for request processing and approval.

NOTE: Academic Department website owners/editors are supported by ITS's Academic Technology and should submit a ticket using ITS's ServiceNow for requests or to report issues with academic department websites or blogs.
