Students gain valuable experience helping Queen's groups enhance web presence

Each year, Information Technology Services (ITS) runs the Summer Student Web Resource Program (SSWRP). Designed to assist campus departments and faculties improve their web presence or their web-based projects, the program hires students, provides them with training, support and equipment over the summer.

This annual program is a great service offering from ITS that builds stronger working relationships with various groups at Queen’s. The Testimonials webpage on the ITS site is a great example of how SSWRP students helped the Planning With Indigenous Peoples Research Group last year.

Other past clients have included the School of Graduate Studies, the Faculty of Education, RauhLab, the Department of Geography and Planning and Undergraduate Admission.


SSWRP is a really great opportunity for students to gain valuable hands-on experience with web accessibility auditing software, Queen’s Streaming Service, Queen’s Wiki and the Queen’s Visual Identity guidelines,” says Natasha Redknap, Project Coordinator.


Students interested in the program should have a good working knowledge of HTML and CSS, have experience with Drupal or another web content management system, possess strong written and oral communication skills and good dose of creativity and teamwork mentality.
