CMS Services and Training

The University website is managed with a Content Management System (CMS). The Office of Marketing and Communications provides access to, and training for, the CMS. For new CMS users, the first step is to request a CMS Account. You should then RSVP for a CMS 101 training session. The current CMS training schedule as well as various CMS resources are below.
