New features coming to Faculty Websites

A big change is coming to Faculty Websites. We will soon be moving to managed hosting by partnering with CampusPress, a leading provider of WordPress websites for higher education. 

By migrating to CampusPress hosting, we can now offer a larger selection of themes and plugins. CampusPress has a large library of plugins curated for higher education that will help extend what you can do with your website. You will soon be able choose these plugins from your Dashboard instead of having to request them.

Planned Outage for Migration - December 4 - 6, 2020

Faculty Websites will be migrated to our new hosting platform starting Friday, December 4 - Sunday, December 6, 2020. During that time, your website will be available in a "read-only" mode. You will not be able to make changes during that time, but your site will be up and available to viewers. On Monday, December 7, 2020 your new site will be ready for you to login and take advantage of the new features.
