Dr. Darga stressed the importance of

  1. working within boundaries set by campus-wide design policies
  2. setting and meeting understandable (and understood) objectives
  3. rolling out the new site in June for testing and polishing by Fall 2010

Discussions surrounding details of organization and web parts focused on

  1. Defining Portal channel content
  2. Defining upcoming home page changes
  3. Defining, for example, upcoming interior page labels, links, headers

There are so many processes to be defined and worked out regarding how we will decide, that a free flowing discussion settled with consensus on using the wiki and meeting monthly,

The discussion tab will be used on pages to work toward resolution.
