Subject: Your Student Org Website on CONNECT | Action Required

Greetings Student Orgs! 

Our office is reviewing all student org websites that have been created on CONNECT.  Over the past year, CONNECT made some updates to their website builder and switched to a new website builder that is easier to use and more visually appealing.  It has been determined that the orgs below are still using the "old" website builder.

At some point this old website builder will be going away and all orgs will need to activate the new website builder.

In addition, our campus web policy was recently updated and we now require that student orgs maintain at a mimum the following information on their website:

•Standard UW-Stout Header
•Surveys + Forms
•Contact Us

We would like to give your org an opportunity to make updates to your website and activate the new website builder.  Below are a few resources to help you do this.

Website Builder Guide:  Review this for a brief overview of the builder along with what widgets you are required to include on your website

Getting Started with the Website Builder: Support Articles

Summer is a great time to work on this should your officers have time to update it.  If you'd like to make the updates yourself, please have these done by July 31st. 

For any orgs that do not complete the updates by this date, our office will switch your website over for you and activate the new website builder with a standard template. Keep in mind, you would lose any customizations you had prior.
