To ensure central support, University Web Services (UWS) must oversee the creation, modification, and/or redesign of a design theme.
Design Theme Development
UWS has the capacity to create or redesign one design theme per semester at no cost to the unit, for a total of three themes per year. Design themes can also be created and/or redesigned outside the one-theme-per-semester cycle using a non-university vendor; however, the project must be funded by the requesting unit.
