UCDA Brings Together Their Professional Academic Community On an International Scale


HOUSTON, September 7, 2016
 –Tendenci (https://www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci Open Source platform, is excited to release a newly-designed, mobile-responsive website for the University and College Designers Association (UCDA). The website, https://www.ucda.com, hosts an online community for the national organization to support their colleagues in professional opportunities for advanced learning and personal networking. 

From the UCDA website:

The University & College Designers Association (UCDA) inspires designers working in academia in North America and around the world by delivering relevant programming and benefits in a personal and thoughtful way.

The organization provides for the professional and personal growth of its members, and advocates for designer and educators roles within their institution. UCDA works to elevate the importance of design overall.

Tendenci Open Source was released as an open source solution to give organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence. With a flexible design interface, UCDA was able to implement their highly-stylized custom layout on the Tendenci platform, taking advantage of the user-friendly administrative interface while staying true to their unique brand.

Mobile-responsive design, complex membership structure, flexible event registration options and site security were all factors for the implementation of the new site on Tendenci. The new UCDA site is easily navigated on all devices, making it easy for the association to keep their members informed of events and opportunities within the organziation and the design industry.

Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for organizations around the world, including the Society of Petroleum Engineers - Gulf Coast Section (http://www.spegcs.org), the American Citizens Abroad organization (https://www.americansabroad.org), and the Houston Technology Center (http://www.houstontech.org).
