Support and Training for University Websites

Georgia Southern utilizes a content management system – WordPress – for managing all public-facing websites for colleges, departments and outreach units. There are many benefits to using a managed content management system and WordPress in particular. Here are just a few of the things we’re able to do effectively with WordPress:

  • keep our online content fresh and up-to-date – as updating content in WordPres is relatively simple and there’s no need to rely on a tech resource, content editors can update their websites more often.
  • engage our visitors more effectively and help them find the information they need
  • separate content from design so future redesigns are less time-consuming and costly

Currently, Georgia Southern has three primary WordPress themes in use – the College theme for colleges, the Unit theme for division websites, and the Department theme which is flexible enough for most departments, centers and outreach units. View all themes here >
