ITS is now accepting applications for the Summer Student Web Resource Program (SSWRP)

First launched in 2009, The Summer Student Web Resource Program (SSWRP) was designed to assist departments in improving their web-based projects using ITS supported tools and applications. The program has been particularly popular with departments and faculties wishing to build new or update existing websites using WebPublish, Queen's web content management system.

Students at WorkUnder the program, ITS hires and trains students and provides
them with equipment and support. Students use tools and services, like web accessibility auditing software, Queen's Streaming Service, Adobe Photoshop, Queen's Wiki, and the Queen's Image Bank, in addition to learning about Queen's Visual Identity Standards.

QuoteThe program offers students great summer employment allowing them to assist with a range of tasks, including content updates or transitioning to the current version of WebPublish. In past years, students provided valuable
input on improving website accessibility.
