Uniting five colleges, multiple campuses, and international students studying worldwide, Hope International University‘s dynamic new online digital campus is now live and serving students from Fullerton to Fiji. HIU.edu now welcomes students directly into a new online campus experience — delivering one-click access into each student’s academic pursuits, whether an undergraduate on campus, an online undergraduate, a graduate student, or an international student.
“The debut of HIU’s remarkable new website represents a strategic and significant investment of resources, providing us with a powerful new tool for effective communication, recruitment, marketing, public relations, and overall institutional pride,” says Michael Mulryan, Vice President for Institutional Advancement. “This is a quantum leap forward from our previous online presence, and incorporates many powerful new features that will benefit both external and internal audiences alike.”
“A new standard of web design for this educational institution was needed to reach the University’s own high standards of academic excellence, and to reflect HIU’s outstanding performance in its U.S. News & World Report rankings,” states Terry Gniffke, CEO of Caliber Media Group who designed and developed the new site. “This cherished California educational institution sought a re-architected online campus, responsive in terms of visitor experience, and contextual to each student’s own academic journey across the colleges.”
To facilitate every student’s enhanced access to HIU resources, Caliber constructed a robust and fully customized Content Management System (CMS) for the University administration, technically tailored to enable department-by-department management of each area’s respective digital assets. Dynamic content publishing is enabled throughout the new digital campus, with instant Social Media access spanning all departments and in-depth web analytics systems to allow further optimization for both site publishing and campus navigation online.
“From Fullerton to Fiji, Australia to Costa Rica, the worldwide student body now has one central, shared campus to access and experience online,” reports Mark Senefsky, Caliber’s Executive Vice President. “Caliber is honored to assist Hope as it pursues its vision for higher education in California and for its student body worldwide.”
