From Stone Age-worthy Sites to Cohesive Content: How Trinity University is Using Drupal to Enhance Their .Edu Space

Blogs, course content, research updates, and Spiders on Drugs. Wait ... what?! Faculty, staff, and student organizations at Trinity University had spent about a decade developing creative content and individual web sites on the trinity.edu domain. Unfortunately, their creativity was published online without any oversight or review process, and without a content management system to store or organize data.

Trinity needed a solution that would enable their faculty to easily create and update brand-consistent sites, and students to search for a multitude of research, teaching, and student org content all within the .edu domain. As a result, Trinity, in partnership with ImageX Media, turned to open-source Drupal as a cost-effective, customizable, and easy-to-train solution.

In this webinar, you will hear from Trinity and ImageX about how Drupal has enabled the university to:

  • Focus on content creation without having to navigate through back-end web code
  • Create customizable, responsive themes on a flexible template
  • Increase site governance with user and contributor permissions
  • Allow Trinity to “own,” through presence on the trinity.edu domain, content and keywords that showcase Trinity community members as thought leaders in their fields
