UAAP Launches New Website

Melissa Martin-Greene, Program Coordinator, UAAP

The UAAP has a brand new website that unifies content for all programs and services under one robust design. Primacy Digital Services—the design firm also responsible for the recent redesign of the Division of Student Life (DSL) website—is the company behind the UAAP’s new look.

The site comes after much refining of content and navigation, based on student and other constituent feedback. With input from DSL communications colleagues, UAAP staff and the Primacy consultants ultimately delivered a compelling product that offers a more cohesive user experience and streamlines access to important information and services.

The unified design, clear navigation structure, and streamlined menus are set in a responsive layout compatible with all platforms, ensuring that users can navigate among UAAP’s various services with ease on desktops, laptops, or mobile devices.
