Luther College earns Best University Website Award for 2023 WebAwards
“It’s a huge honor to have the Luther website named the Best University Website of 2023. As our second website award this year, it reinforces what we heard from our most important judges – prospective and current students – that the Luther website is appealing and easy to use,” said Laura Barlament, executive director of strategic marketing and communications for Luther. “It was our goal to build a website that reflects the excellence and the warmth of the Luther community itself.”
Luther’s website stands as a model of creative and user-centered design. Independent judges from around the world assessed websites from nearly 90 colleges and universities with Luther emerging as the clear winner, setting the website as the benchmark for excellence in the field.
The competition has established itself as the leading award recognition program for website developers and the online marketing community. Other institutions that took home awards and honors for the 2023 competition include Aston Martin, Virgin Atlantic Airlines, the American Cancer Society, Lenovo and TripAdvisor.
The award comes a year after the launch of the redesigned luther.edu. Luther partnered with mStoner, now part of Carnegie, a higher education marketing and enrollment strategy firm, to redesign the website.
“I’m grateful for all of the efforts of the Marketing and Communications team and the Carnegie team to let Luther’s light shine as brightly online as it does on campus,” Barlament said.
