About the YaleSites upgrade project

Yale University’s Informational Technology Services (ITS) and Office of Public Affairs and Communications (OPAC) have partnered to launch a new version of the YaleSites web publishing platform. This upgrade project is part of Yale’s commitment to accessibility and better web communications. Our goal is to improve the user experience for people who maintain websites, make it easier to comply with brand standards, and keep Yale technologically up-to-date. 

Why is this happening 

We aim to provide an easy-to-use, high-quality platform for building and maintaining websites. This upgrade will simplify the process while still offering flexibility to meet the needs of different sites. Our Advisory Committee is helping ensure we integrate user research and community priorities into the upgrade, and our technical team is committed to a forward-thinking, federally accessible and compliant design system. (The new YaleSites will meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level AA.)  


Our Advisory Committee includes leaders from the following units across the University: 

  • Yale College 

  • Faculty of Arts & Sciences 

  • Yale Law 

  • Internal Communications 

  • School of Environment 

  • Office of Public Affairs & Communications 

  • Yale College Dean’s Office 

  • Office of the Provost 

  • Yale Printing & Publishing Service 

  • ITS Web Technologies  

Stay informed 

We will be sending regular updates about the project via the IT Update Newsletter, and platform users can expect to receive targeted email communications related to their sites as well. We will be cross-posting updates on the YaleSites Project Updates page.  

Prepare for your site migration by attending trainings and workshops or visiting our resources section.
