University of New Mexico Continuing Education was awarded top Web site of 2011 for excellence in Web site Design from more than 100 entries from four countries by the Learning Resources Network (LERN), an international association in lifelong learning. UNM Continuing Education was recognized for its use of less copy and more visual impact by infusing bold colors with simple design, and graphics enhanced by marketing tag lines.

The award recognizes Marketing Director, Kim Halpern, and Web Designer, Jeremy Jaramillo. The marketing team that helps maintain the site includes Sarah Scott, Deborah Kastman and Paige Brown.

Julie Coates, vice-president of Information Services for LERN, said that this year's award nominees were among the highest quality ever submitted.

LERN members offer hundreds of exemplary programs annually, as well as exceptional ideas for marketing, community service and brochure and web page design.
