How Can Phase 4 Departments Prepare for the CMS?

  • Check the content on your web sites now
  • Update and reduce content where appropriate
  • The top level navigation of the new design accommodates about six categories of content and many sites will need to reconsider the navigation of existing sites
  • Contact ronna.johnston@unco.edu for analytics on your existing site
