The web modernization project began nearly two years ago when teams from UTA began the research and discovery process. In fall 2018, 14 web units from across campus were identified to transition as first wave websites and began the process of auditing their sites and preparing their content for the first deployments of the new website.

This is the timeline for the remainder of the first wave of migration taking place throughout the summer of 2019.

Following the deployment of first wave websites and an evaluation period, University Advancement and the Office of Information Technology will establish the migration schedule for the remaining campus units. For details on the first wave of websites and the migration process, please visit the FAQs.
