Campus Web Templates
In June 2010, the new campus web templates became available for use by all campus departments in the Web Content Management System (WCMS). There are many advantages to using these templates.
- There are four different designs to choose from
- They comply with all university design and branding standards
- They comply with all web standards (XHTML, CSS, etc.)
- They comply with all Section 508 accessibility standards, as required by the CSU-wide Accessible Technology Initiative
- They use a standard set of HTML code that makes it relatively easy to change designs

Web Content Management System (WCMS)
For the past two years the University has been migrating most of its websites to the Web Content Management System, an integrated system that provides a uniform style, and the ability to update your site through a web-browser interface.
To have your site moved into the WCMS as is, contact Web Services at email@example.com.
To have your site moved into the WCMS with customization or restructuring, contact Web Services through the Request Form.
Self-help resources for the WCMS
Although any web editor can be used, most faculty and staff websites are created in Adobe Dreamweaver, (as well as some department sites that have not yet migrated to the new WCMS). Campus support for Dreamweaver is limited to training and self-help resources.
