SMU has introduced a new version of its homepage designed to be as useful as possible for audiences who are unfamiliar with SMU, including prospective students. The new-look site went live on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016.

The more mobile-friendly design features enhanced use of photography and videos, with a smaller and more focused selection of top-page links designed to help users find relevant information more easily.

In addition, the updated site has a new template that will make it easier for schools and units to use a similar look for their own websites in the future.
