Departmental Websites

Websites are available at the university for representing departments or organizations. These are extensions of the main university website and should be considered a professional representation of your department.

  1. If your department does not already have a website, request a site. This will create a web address for you much like the following:
  2. Attend a Cascade Server training to learn how to use the USD templates within our content management software. This training is mandatory before ITS can authorize a web account in the USD Contnet Management System.

    Note: A handful of websites at the university are still managed using Adobe Contribute; sites managed using Adobe Contribute are generally Admissions or College of Arts and Sciences websites. To request an Adobe Contribute Training and software installation, please email

  3. Request access to the CMS once you have attended training. To do this please send an e-mail to with your name and the URL(s) of the website(s) you will be responsible for.

  4. If you require ITS support for putting your new site within the USD template system, please see the steps involved in building a new site.
