The IIS Department of Communications and Development is delighted to announce the launch of the new IIS website, which benefits from a complete redesign and the addition of several exciting new features.

The site development has been shaped by feedback collected from hundreds of IIS staff and students and other website users in an initial evaluation stage, with the goal of creating a website that serves ll of our diverse audiences’ needs more effectively and intuitively.

Two core improvements are at the heart of the new website. Firstly, visitors will enjoy faster and more intelligent search functionality, which will mean that they can find relevant content quicker. You will be able to search and filter listings on our news, events, publications and course pages, so that you can find the content you want easily.

Secondly, the way information is displayed has been upgraded to make it easier to scan and find information more quickly, including new horizontal menus and a related items section on each page.

Other key new features include:

  • Revamped homepage with clearer connections to different sections of the site reflecting reas of the Institute’s work;
  • Redesigned IIS publications pages, which are easier to scan and discover related titles by author or series;
  • Redesigned graduate studies pages, including a new eligibility survey form when the applications are open;
  • Redesigned research pages, with a stronger link to related IIS publications and series;
  • New and improved IIS researcher profile pages;

Dr Maria Bada, Acting Head of the Department of Communications and Development, who led the development of the new site, says:

I am thrilled with the result as it is the culmination of a mutually collaborative process involving staff and audiences alike. The new design and enhanced functionality fully support the IIS overall goals of promoting scholarship and learning about Muslim cultures and societies. I am deeply grateful for the exceptional commitment of the IIS delivery teams and our skilled volunteers."

We invite you to explore the new IIS website and hope you enjoy the improved user experience. We encourage all users to continue to collaborate with us and submit feedback and suggestions to keep shaping the new site via the feedback survey form that will appear when you exit.
