A&S Communications Team Welcomes Senior Web Developer
Will Lehman brings over five years of higher ed web design experience to A&S.
The College of Arts and Sciences’ Office of Communications welcomes Will Lehman as its new Senior Web Developer. In that role, he will lead the effort to design and implement digital strategies that meet the needs of Syracuse University’s largest college, as well as respond to ever-evolving technological opportunities and web challenges. The A&S website includes 7,100 pages of content and has garnered more than 2 million pageviews over the past year.
Lehman comes to A&S with extensive experience in website design, development and management for higher education institutions. He was most recently the web content manager at D'Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University. As the primary steward of the website for that college, Lehman worked with faculty, staff, content experts and others to provide the best information and user experience possible for their audiences. With a focus on website optimization, he extensively analyzed usage data from Google Analytics, leveraged search engine optimization (SEO) tools, and tracked and adjusted for accessibility and performance metrics.
Prior to his work at Northeastern, Lehman was a public services technology coordinator for Brandeis Library at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, where he managed content and worked on a major information architecture redesign of the library's website.
Lehman received an M.S. in information sciences from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and an M.A. in linguistics and B.A. in global affairs from George Mason University.
“Will brings with him a wonderful blend of technical knowledge, higher education experience and strong interpersonal communication skills,” says Arts and Sciences director of communications, Daeya Malboeuf. “I have no doubt that his thoughtful and result-oriented approach will ensure an inviting, effective and accessible digital presence that will help advance the business goals of the College for years to come.”
“I am excited to get to know and work with the A&S community,” says Lehman. “I'm looking forward to supporting and enhancing the great work that the communications team does. Go Orange!"
Lehman started April 4, and is working remotely from the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.
