The GSE IT Web Team

The GSE IT Web Team provides hosting, design, and application development services to GSE faculty, programs, offices, centers and student groups. 

Web Team Services

The IT Web Team is responsible for the following web-related requests:

  • Designing and building new websites and redesigning existing sites with an emphasis on graphics, layout, structure, and functionality
  • Additional functionality for websites, including web forms and web applications
  • Creation and management of user accounts and site security
  • Providing training to users for localized content updates
  • Uploading and hosting images, PDFs, and other documents
  • Executing edits and updates to existing webpages

All web-related requests should be sent to gse-webrequest [at] lists.upenn.edu.

GSE Communications is available to assist with content organization, development, writing, and proofing. They oversee content production and collaborate with the GSE IT Web Team on implementation and design.  The GSE IT Web Team does not create or edit content aside from copy/pasting it into your site. If you have questions about writing or would like help with proofing or copyediting your content, please contact Communications.

Website Design and Creation

GSE organizations may request assistance in creating their website. We host websites using a content management system called Drupal. This interface makes updating the content yourself easy and intuitive. These services are currently provided free of charge, but must be scheduled in advance. Please note that GSE does not provide support or hosting services for personal or commercial websites; these must be stored on an external host.

Web Content Changes

Please contact gse-webrequest [at] lists.upenn.edu with any content changes. Unless you are an approved content editor, we may have to send your content to the Communications Team for approval before posting it.

Web Application Development

GSE's team of web designers and programmers also develop web-based applications. Development is limited to applications with school-wide relevance or benefit. In addition, we offer consulting on other application development projects. To discuss the feasibility of a project, or for assistance in initiating a project discussion, please contact us.
