Website Guidelines

All official pages and marketing materials should adhere to a standard design style in an effort to present a consistent experience for users.
Page layout, color, navigation, and font are established sitewide by the templates accessible through the university's Sitefinity content management system.

As part of the redesign project, the university also took important steps toward improving accessibility, an effort that continues today. It is important for all campus content managers to use the current template structure to ensure best practices for accessibility.
