As well as providing resources, information on events and a regular newsletter, The Idea of a University website was designed to foster debate around a central question, “What place does religion have in the Western research university?".
The website’s primary function was to provide project contributors with a simple-to-use blogging system from which to publish articles and research. Articles are promoted through social media and a regular HTML newsletter and readers are encouraged to interact and join the debate by adding comments to articles. The website also provides information on the project including the team, downloadable resources and information on related events. A dedicated section on the project’s closing conference was also created. As well as being simple to update through our powerful CMS the website features an original typographical design that incorporates University of Cambridge branding whilst retaining the originality of the Idea of a University brand.
