UWM's CMS will revolutionize the way campus and personal Web sites are created and maintained.
With UWM's content management system set to launch this summer, it's not too early to begin planning for your site's migration to the CMS. While the CMS is designed to make managing web content easy, the initial migration of content into the CMS requires careful thought and planning. Learn more about what you can do to prepare.
Campus-wide availability of the CMS will be offered shortly after a successful upgrade of the production environment. Stay tuned to this site for updates regarding the upgrade process. More more information, please see the latest cms upgrade information update page.
How will I get access?
When the CMS becomes available for campus-wide use, a form will be available on this website to request access to the system. When a request is received, UITS Web Development staff will work with your department to schedule a CMS Orientation meeting. The purpose of the orientation meeting to answer questions about the system, discuss templates, re-design plans, access levels, roles, permissions, training, support, and more. Access to the CMS will be given after the orientation meeting.
