What are we changing: we are creating a new Homepage, redesigning the menus, and adding new role-specific pages for students, faculty, and staff. We are also improving how iMpact appears on mobile devices.
Why are we making these changes: Our students, faculty, staff, and alumni have unique needs and interests. Our goal is to provide a more intuitive experience to help you more easily access the information you need.
When are we changing iMpact: we will switch over on the morning of Monday June 5
Keep reading for a sneak peek of what iMpact will look like starting June 5!
What Changes will I See?
iMpact Web Portal Homepage
The new iMpact homepage layout is designed to provide you with quick access to audience-specific (student, faculty, staff, and alumni) landing pages with information and resources tailored for each audience. You can access the landing pages using the large buttons on the homepage. The Quick Start links on the right give you one-click access to our most commonly used tools and pages.

Landing Pages for Students, Faculty, & Staff
We have created new landing pages for students, faculty, and staff that will have audience-relevant content in one place. Once we go live, we will actively solicit feedback so we can refine the landing pages’ content and improve your experience.
New Menus for Each Audience
At the top of the page, you will see new audience-specific menus for Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni. Like the landing pages, each menu will feature the webpages and tools most relevant to that role. The new wide layout puts all menu items at the same level. You will have access to all menus regardless of your role. Your feedback on what to add, remove, or rearrange on the menus will help improve them for the whole community.
Sneak Peek of the New Global Navigation
The new mobile navigation combines search, menus, and quick links in one place that resizes to fit the size of your mobile device.
