UNO's website redesign is guided by many components.
Brand and Design: We currently have three templates for university-level pages and three templates for college-level pages. An online style guide will provide information about the standards recommended to remain compliant with the UNO brand online.
CMS: Cascade, a content management tool, will allow individual website managers across campus to create and post original content to the website. Once the CMS is available, training sessions will be provided for new users.
Governance: A formal policy will provide structure, accountability and a strategic framework to guide our digital communication efforts.
Campus Collaboration: The UNO website will be directed and maintained by the following:
- Website Executive Committee
- Director of Administrative Information Services, Bret Blackman
- Director of University Communications, Erin Owen
- Associate Director of Digital Communications, Liz Renner
- UNO Central Web Team
- Maverick Communications Group
- Individual Unit Web Managers and Content Contributors
Please use the following materials to prepare your unit for conversion into the new CMS/templates.
- Getting Started Presentation
- Getting Started Packet
- Content Audit Worksheet
Content Strategy Presentation
As individual units are transitioned into Cascade, our content management system (CMS) the university's central web team will make training opportunities and resources available.
For an overview of the basic skills needed to work within the CMS, download the CMS Cheat Sheet.
The UNO website renovation is taking place in a series of phases. Priorities are determined by the members of the Website Executive Committee and implementation is led by a team from University Communications and Information Services. The documents below provide a listing of the projects in each phase and their status.
