Professor and Chair
Department of City and Regional Planning
Noreen McDonald worked closely with ITS Digital Services on the group’s creation and launch of the WordPress website for the Department of City and Regional Planning.
“We spent a great deal of time thinking about how the website could serve departmental needs – from providing information to students interested in applying to UNC to helping our current students have better information about the course schedule. ITS and particularly Kim Vassiliadis were essential in helping us do this. Kim walked us through how to think about different users and solicit input from them.”
“The end product is a website that meets many needs and is much easier to maintain.”
“Working with ITS was very simple. Kim had a great knowledge base from all her work across campus on related projects; she also has the technical skills to translate our design goals into reality. Kim’s understanding of departments was also really important. She recognized that many people needed to be consulted and the importance of doing this – even if at times it meant we went slower. I couldn’t be happier with the overall product.”
