Working with Central Web Services, we've developed a set of themes for use in Drupal and Wordpress. These themes (or templates) are available via centrally hosted solutions. There is no cost for hosting or use of the themes by departments or academic units. There are some features for customizing the themes, but generally you'll want to use content and imagery to create a unique look for your unit.
These templates and themes should be the starting point for any online communication project undertaken by an university department, office or program.
