The Anderson University School of Theology launched a new website this week, offering a fresh look for the seminary while adding a number of new features. The site may be accessed at www.anderson.edu/sot/.
New features include seminary news and events integrated throughout the site; links to the seminary's presence on social network sites including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn; improvements to navigation; free sample classes; seminary videos; and convenient access to chapel audio podcasts.
"I am so pleased to announce our new and improved website," said Dr. David Sebastian, dean of the School of the Theology. "We have discovered that so many new friends are first hearing about us through the web. So, we decided to dust off our front porch."
The new design closely mirrors the developing brand of the university, said Chris Williams, director of university communications.
"This new website represents a major upgrade as the School of Theology continues to reach out and share timely information. We hope visitors will provide important feedback as they use the site, and as the site continues to grow in the future," Williams said. "This upgrade would not be possible without the leadership of John Aukerman and David Neidert in the School of Theology and Randy Dillinger in the Office of University Communications."
The new website was developed in partnership with Brainstorm, a firm in Indianapolis.
