RE: Reminder & Update: Old Website Goes Offline TOMORROW & Faculty Profiles

Reminder: the old John Jay website goes offline on November 1, 2023. Pages that are not incorporated into the new site by 6:30pm tomorrow, November 1, will not be available on either the old or new site.

Please contact me asap if you need assistance with your pages. You can also find training videos, a user guide and more here.

Update: All faculty profiles on the old website were migrated to the new website. During the week of November 13, we'll share details on how faculty members can update their profiles or create new profiles.

Thank you

Project Liaisons

Project liaisons organize reviewing the content on the pages “owned” by each unit/department, finalize what current content should stay the same, be updated or be deleted, capture what new content needs to be created, manage implementation, ensure deadlines are met and serve as a liaison between units/departments and the project team. Liaisons can organize this process in whatever way makes the most sense for their unit/department.
