Homepage Featured Events
The weber.edu homepage launched with a new design in fall 2014. With this new design, the "rotator banner" previously used to promote WSU institutional messages and events has been discontinued, and new features introduced.
The homepage features a large showcase image to highlight strategic, university-wide messages. These images and messages will be created and managed by Marketing & Communications.
If you have a major upcoming event, we may consider it for a showcase — please contact web content editor Katie England at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Suitable event examples: the sustainability summit, the undergraduate research symposium, conferences that bring in participants from around the region/nation.)
The website contains landing pages that also use showcase images: Admissions, Academics and Student Life. If you have a program, initiative or event that may be suitable to showcase on one of those pages, please let us know.
The homepage also contains a featured events section. To fill this section, Marketing & Communications staff members will select events that have been submitted to the WSU master calendar. To see who in your college/division can submit calendar items, or to become an authorized user, visit https://weber.edu/bulletinboardhelp.
Calendar items will be selected for promotion on the homepage based on the following criteria:
- The event is appropriate for a broad audience. Preferably, it would be open to WSU students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. Events for solely WSU students are acceptable, but they should be pertinent to all or the vast majority of students.
- The calendar submission has appropriate accompanying artwork (in content, size and quality) to be featured on the homepage. Suggested size: 300 wide x 200 high pixels at 150 resolution.
- The calendar submission has all pertinent information included and links to a URL with complete information.
- Selected events showcase a broad range of interests and subjects.
There is room for at least five and up to 10 events on the homepage at one time, and they will display in order of event date. Contact web content editor Katie England at email@example.com to request homepage "featured events" consideration for your upcoming event.
Calendar items will be copied onto the homepage calendar and may be edited by Marketing & Communications to correct errors, clarify information or improve presentation.
