What Do You Want in a Website?
Global Marketing and Communications, in an effort to gather input from the greater Webster University community, will conduct an open intake session at 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 27.
For those at extended campus locations, the session will be streamed live at www.webster.edu/live. The live broadcast will include a chat feature allowing for questions.
The purpose of the session will be to gather insights from students, faculty and staff as we plan for the new www.webster.edu. Information gathered at the session will be shared with mStoner, the design and implementation firm supporting the University through this effort.
The website is the digital front door to the University and we want it adequately reflect who we are and who we want to be - a worldwide institution that transforms students for global citizenship and individual excellence.
As you prepare to enter the discussion, please consider the following:
- What is Webster's "street perception?" How is it different from our competitors?
- Are there misperceptions about Webster you feel we need to dispel?
- What colleges or universities do a particularly good job at selling their institution? What did they do well?
- How well does the current website serve Webster? What does our site do well now? What could it do better?
- Anything the website could do to make your life easier?
- What's the one thing you'd want a student to know about Webster?
- If, after an initial visit to the website, a person could walk away remembering three things about Webster, what would you have those three things be?
Any additional insights can be sent to Patrick Powers, director of digital marketing and communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Updates on Counseling Program
This summer, the Counseling program will be offering an immersion project in Sri Lanka. COUN 5100: Social Cultural Foundations of Counseling will be the first "global" hybrid course offered within the Counseling program. It is an advanced core course and is therefore open only to Counseling students currently enrolled in the MA in Counseling program. The course will be held in July 2012, as a partnership with the Tsunami Reconstruction Project/Operation Teardrop Campaign.
The course is designed to provide a service learning experience to Webster students, through a course of study that includes cultural immersion, a targeted research project, and collaborative participation in the tsunami reconstruction/Operation Teardrop project. It will provide participating students with an important educational experience, which will broaden their understanding of our interconnectedness with the global community and provide them with the hands-on opportunity to make a difference in addressing global issues. Because of living arrangements, a very limited number of students are able to attend. If you have interested students, please have them contact Maria Gonzalez at email@example.com for more information.
The PSE Revision Committee has completed the 2012 revised edition of the Professional Skills Evaluation. It can be found on our Connections groups and the counseling documents webpage.
