Board of Regents, State of Iowa

The challenge

The nine Iowa regents govern five public educational institutions, including the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and Northern Iowa. Also under their purview are two special K-12 schools, the Iowa School for the Deaf and the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School. The Board of Regents' old website was outdated and had website accessibility compliance issues.

Knowing that their website was overdue for a refresh in terms of design and functionality, the Board of Regents was looking for an Iowa web development company that could meet their specific needs. The design had to be responsive and WCAG/Section 508 compliant for accessibility to those with disabilities. The functionality overhaul of the website would also require much easier management of both extensive official archives and current information on the various institutions they govern.

The solution

The Iowa web design team at Global Reach created a new website with a responsive web design for the Board of Regents. The new custom web design conveys the Board of Regents' prestige, history, and commitment to education with user-friendly information and resources. With a WCAG-compliant website solution and expert custom web development services, Global Reach was able to meet and exceed all of the Boards' expectations for their new website.

With extensive experience with custom web design and development work, the web developers at Global Reach were able to create a website that met all functionality needs while still being user-friendly for both website visitors and administrators. All archived documents are well organized and WCAG compliant. The website is totally responsive and looks beautiful on any device. With the SiteViz content management solution, the Regents are now able to update their content with ease, share news, and post alerts. 


Global Reach’s web design services for the Board of Regents were recognized with a Horizon Interactive Award: Silver in the Government Agency Website category.
