Uniting five Southern California colleges, an International University online, and its university students studying worldwide, Hope International University‘s new digital campus has debuted to serve students from Fullerton to Fujian.
HIU.EDU now welcomes students directly into a new online campus experience — delivering one-click access into each student’s academic pursuits, whether as an undergraduate on campus, an online undergraduate, as a member of HIU’s graduate students programs, or as an international student.
“A new web design standard for this academic institution needed to reach the university’s own standards of educational excellence, certainly to reflect HIU’s outstanding performance in their U.S. News & World Report rankings,” states Terry Gniffke, Caliber Media Group’s CEO. “This cherished California university sought a re-architected online campus, responsive in design to visitor experience but specifically responsive to each student’s own academic journey across the colleges.”
To facilitate every student’s enhanced access to university resources Caliber also constructed a robust and fully customized Content Management System (CMS) for the university administration – technically tailored for school administrators themselves, enabling department-by-department management for each school’s respective digital assets. Dynamic intramural content publishing was enabled within the university’s new digital campus, with instant Social Media access spanning across all departments while in-depth web analytics systems serve to allow further optimization for both site publishing and campus navigation online.
“From Fullerton to China’s Fujian Province, from Australia to Costa Rica, the student body now has one central, shared campus to access and experience online,” reports Mark Senefsky, Caliber’s Executive Vice President. “Of course, every student’s educational experience — within and across the university internationally — commences at Admissions, and that department’s resources are also designed to be immediately welcoming and intuitively helpful. Caliber is honored to assist Hope as it pursues its vision for higher education in California and for its student body worldwide.” Hope International University is also ranked within the top-50 Christian Colleges in the United States.
