Visitors to Johns Hopkins University's website will see something different beginning later this month.

A new and improved, the first redesign for the university website since 2009, is expected to debut by the end of April.

The new site is designed to make important information easier to find and to do a better job of telling university stories. Its features include a simplified menu and more powerful search function; a new searchable and sortable database of JHU's more than 200 academic programs; and a design that looks great on any device, including tablets and mobile devices.

In planning and developing the new, members of the redesign team sought feedback from Johns Hopkins staff, faculty members, students, parents of students, alumni, and others. They also analyzed data about how visitors use the website and conducted user testing to fine-tune site features and functions.

The team will continue to collect feedback before and after the site's launch date and will make changes aimed at improving the site and the experience of its users.
