English Gets A Facelift

Posted: 9/1/2004
Over the summer months the web development team in the English Department worked to redesign the Department's website. The goal was to bring a greater amount of interactivity to its users, to make the site easier to navigate, and to be able to offer information tailored to specific audiences. We hope you like the changes we've made, and we are working to improve upon the site even further in the near future. Look around and let us know what you think. Problems, praise, questions, concerns—all are welcome at:

eng.web.admin@umich.edu

If you suggest a change or improvement, the web team will do its best to see that it is implemented.
