MSU Denver

The MSU Denver Web Content Management System (CMS) Project was an effort to better support and improve MSU Denver’s Web presence. Co-sponsored by University Communications and Marketing and Information Technology Services, the project team originally implemented a Web content management solution in September 2011 to support the creation, management, delivery and sharing of Web content across the University while promoting quality, consistency, accessibility, and security. These elements are regularly assessed to ensure the institution’s Web presence and CMS platform continues to provide a high-quality user experience.

Though the MSU Denver website is managed by UCM and ITS, individual University subdirectories are maintained by each department, center or program using the University’s web content management system. The University’s CMS is powered by WordPress.
