The sites I’ve built
One of my roles at Wake Forest University has become “College WordPress Guy”. As such, I’ve designed a theme, WF College One Pro (no, it’s not in the wordpress.org repository) and launched several sites for my departments and Wake Forest College. (There are several other sites around campus that also use variations of my theme, but these are the ones on which I work directly.)
The Department of Counseling
The Department of Counseling is located in Tribble Hall (just off the lobby, look for the glass door), and offers both undergraduate and graduate courses, and is even the home of Wake Forest University’s newest online degree program, a Master’s degree in Counseling. They also have a great semester abroad program in Vienna, Austria, where counseling students see where many of the theories and techniques in counseling and psychotherapy originated.

The Department of Education
The American Ethnic Studies program
The American Ethnic Studies program is a multi-disciplinary program that spans faculty from many different departments and programs. In many ways, AES defies description, so the best idea of what it is and what you can gain from its classes can be had by visiting the site itself. (The thumbnail to the left links to the full site.)
The College Board of Visitors
The College Board of Visitors is an organization composed of Wake Forest alumni which advises the College on projects and capital campaigns. The enrollment in the Board (and therefore in the site) posed some initial challenges, but it has turned into a fairly complex yet easy to operate site. (This site uses the plugins Role Scoper, Add Multiple Users, People Lists, User Avatar, and a few others to add some really interesting interactivity.)
Assessment of Student Learning
More and more colleges and universities are aiming to better gauge their academic programs by defining specific goals and desired outcomes for their students. This site is a collection of reports from each of the academic units of Wake Forest College of Arts and Sciences, as well as many resources that describe the reasons for such an endeavor, and steps to accomplish a successful assessment of student learning.
This site was mainly created to go along with a couple of WordPress training classes I conducted here at WFU for faculty and staff beginning to use WordPress, specifically concentrating on those using my theme, but designed to be general enough when possible so that users of any theme could benefit. The site is divided into beginner and intermediate sections, with more content to come.
