A revamp of the older header design. The goals were: enhancing discoverability via the drop downs, fine tuning the content per drop down, ease for students/staff/faculty to find important information and quickly access the tools they need.
This process included discovery where I reviewed analytics and heat maps on the landing pages to determine the frequency these items were accessed. Then we fine tuned their locations depending on the need and our goals as a university.

With a few changes to the content after reviews internally with departments. The design has changed to include Athletics based off what what I found in the heatmaps. We were back and forth on including Athletics because it technically links to a microsite managed by our Athletics Dept, but ultimately I felt it was best to include it because of the feedback we have reviewed in the analytics.
