About the Web Users Group

The Web Users Group was created in 1999 to support and promote Web publishing at Western Michigan University. WUG has:

  • Created a forum and support network for WMU Web publishers.
  • Helped develop guidelines for consistent design across University-wide sites.
  • Utilized collective strength and served as a viable and influential presence on campus.
  • WUG endorses the University's statement on shared objectives and values for the Web.

The Web touches all areas of the University, and all benefit from improvements to WMU's Web presence. Given finite resources and the rapidity of technological change, the growing demands for Web-based services can only be met through University-wide solutions that eliminate duplication of effort and foster efficiency.
