We created a cooperative arrangement. We never had a webmaster per se
(I kinda did it in my "spare time"). When our Office of Communications
(read PR) hired a new "Creative Director", they included web design in
the job description. Then Computer Services was given permission to
hire a web developer. So web design and content take place in
Communications, and web management and operations take place in Computer
Services. We have a web steering committee with reps from both orgs and
also a faculty member on it. We're in the process of installing and
implementing a Content Management System. We have a new design that was
developed in Communications and tested for proof of concept in Computer
Services - with appropriate adjustments being made for effective
delivery of pages. We hope to have it implemented on our site by fall.
The arrangement seems to be working.
