Best Practices For Higher Education Website Design

There are several best practices that effective higher education websites utilize to capture attention and drive conversions. As web developers who have been working in higher ed since 1999, we've spent over two decades building and refining our own set of best practices for higher education websites. All of our sites are built with the best practices below and more.

Rich Visual Storytelling

Your students have stories, your staff members have stories, and your school as a whole has a story. Using your website to tell these stories helps visitors build a connection with your brand. Our team will work with you to capture your stories and work them into the site design.

Accessible Design

Universities serve a diverse population of students with varying demands and abilities. It's important for your site to be accessible to provide an inclusive web experience that mirrors your learning environment. Our team is well-versed in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We'll ensure that your site is accessible to all.

Clear Calls To Action

A college or university website doesn't hold much value if it doesn't help drive new enrollment and donations. We'll design layouts that naturally lead users toward your desired conversion actions. We'll also utilize font and color to distinguish your calls to action from the rest of the page.

Intuitive Navigation

College and university websites often have an abundance of web pages that can easily get buried without well-designed site architecture. Your site needs to be easy to navigate, so that students, staff, and prospective students can find the information they're looking for. We'll map out all of your pages and organize menus and internal links to make it easy for users to get to where they need to be.
