Actually, I criticised my university's (a UK equivalent of Ivy League)
computer science alumni web site and basically it is created by a
secretary who considers a person in the department who has written
material on good web design as someone she shouldn't be troubling
for time.  At least for UK universities, I would say that the marketing
side is distinct from the academic side in the same way that most W3C
members' web sites are broken because they are controlled by marketing,
not by their W3C delegates.
