After a comprehensive redesign and upgrade, Syracuse University’s center in Madrid has unveiled a new website.  The site is the result of a yearlong collaboration between SU’s Information Technology and Services, Advancement and External Affairs, SU Abroad, SU Europe and SU Madrid. The conversion unifies the look and feel of existing SU sites and enables Madrid staff to utilize the University’s content management system. This creates a consistent user experience and makes it possible for SU Madrid staff to work in coordination with home campus support teams.

“We are so excited about the new website,” says Bobby Kuehl, director of SU Madrid. “It has been a long and detailed process, but the result is a site that will be more helpful and attractive to our students. We’re also pleased to be able to work with our Syracuse-based colleagues with greater coordination. In particular, I’d like to thank our own Susana Sacristán Fouz and Victoria Pradilla for their dedication to this project.”

The site includes a broad mix of content designed to acquaint new students with Madrid, and will support them over the course of their terms abroad. Important features include:

  • academic information (including course listings and exam schedules);
  • resources on housing, health, and wellness;
  • internship and community engagement opportunities;
  • an events calendar;
  • information on local cultural, religious and culinary points of interest; and
  • tips on getting around and living in Madrid.

“The successful upgrade of the SU Madrid site is a tangible example of how the new cross-unit collaborative approach to managing the University’s international activities is working. The leadership and exemplary teamwork across ITS, AEA, SU Abroad, SU Europe and SU Madrid will now facilitate the rollout of new sites for our centers in London, Florence, Istanbul and Strasbourg,” says Peter Leuner, director of SU Europe. “Students, faculty and staff will all benefit from our enhanced capacity to exchange ideas and learn from one another.”
