Web Communications

The FIT website is the college’s primary communications channel for information and news for many audiences, from prospective and current students to media, alumni, the FIT community, industry, donors, and the public. For most audiences, it’s our first point of contact.

The site provides comprehensive, timely content while capitalizing on FIT’s strong visual identity, with video and interactive features as well as compelling still images. It’s a powerful tool in telling the FIT story.

CER is responsible for the content and development of the entire site and oversees high-level institutional pages, but many members of the community are essential partners in providing, managing and editing additional web content. We provide training for web editors, who are responsible for maintaining and updating pages in their areas. For more, visit Web Publishing at FIT.

The digital team, in collaboration with other CER units, provides and/or assists with:

  • Web/digital content strategy to engage audiences on the website and social media
  • Training for departmental editors in the OmniUpdate OUCampus enterprise system
  • Consultation on webpages for a user-friendly experience
  • Email marketing and e-newsletter templates
  • Analytics and reports for program pages and campaigns
  • Web development work within OU Campus

Please make an inquiry if you have questions about a web service.
