The Department of Marketing and Communications designs and maintains the School’s website for its external audience of visitors and prospective students. Specifically, the staff design and consult on websites for departments, for academic support and for a handful of high-profile centers, institutes and initiatives.
- The Marketing and Communications staff includes seasoned editors and writers, designers and programmers.
- We monitor the School's external website to ensure that the School's visual identity (branding) is maintained.
- We create new sites and manage the School's existing website by means of Site Executive®, a user-friendly content management system that allows users to create and manage their sites without knowledge of HTML or other programming languages.
- Site Executive® requires a web-savvy user; the OCPA can schedule Site Executive training sessions.
The Information Services (IS) Department develops applications, tools and worksites for current students, faculty and staff to use within the School via the intranet, also known as SharePoint, accessed at my.jhsph.edu.
To create a new website, or to revise an existing site, please submit a web project request. After assessing (a) the scope of the project, (b) the nature of the project, (c) the intended external audience, and (d) the timeframe, the OCPA will either schedule a start date to build your website or help you find an approved outside vendor or contractor.
