Concordia's Web Communications unit created the new design and coded the HTML/CSS for the main university website. The new design was also used to create a template for the websites of academic departments, administrative units, official events, etc (e.g., see Media Relations). The code for the site and template adheres to XHTML and CSS web standards, and also includes a number of features for web accessibility.
The Web Communications unit received valuable feedback during the design process from the Concordia community, including the Marketing Communications unit, members of the Web Forum, some volunteer test subjects, and various faculty and staff who attended presentations given by the unit.
The IITS Web Group provides technical support for server administration, as well as some database and web programming.
