PS&L Joins Shippensburg to Discuss Website Upgrade Strategies at CUPRAP Conference
Enrollment marketers know the main website is a powerful vehicle for recruiting and communicating to an institution’s various audiences, especially prospective students and families. However, while demands and expectations for online experiences are evolving at warp-speed, re-imagining the main website to keep up with the times is not always in the cards (or budget).
On Friday, March 18, Ryan Pudloski, Vice President of Web/Interactive at Paskill Stapleton & Lord will join Ken Bach, Communications and Marketing Director at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania to discuss strategies for upgrading existing website ecosystems during the 2022 CUPRAP Spring Conference in Lancaster, PA.
Founded in 1980 as the College and University Public Relations Association of Pennsylvania, CUPRAP now represents 350 higher education professionals from 100 institutions beyond the keystone state.
Titled, “Improve User and Brand Experience When a New Site is Not in the Budget,” the 10:30 a.m. breakout session will empower website content managers and marketers to think beyond a large overhaul of the main website and begin making meaningful upgrades. Through Shippensburg University’s development of various diverse website solutions, attendees will gain insights on how to achieve their website goals on their timelines.
Ryan oversees the development, functionality, and quality assurance of each web project at PS&L and parent company JPL. He is the lead for recent website solutions delivered for The College of St. Scholastica, Shippensburg University, Upper Iowa University, and York College. A graduate of James Madison University, Ryan is a frequent speaker, delivering multiple webinars, including with OmniUpdate on accessibility, and led a session on research-driven designs at eduWeb Digital Summit in Philadelphia.
