Intro paragraph title/heading (<h3> in code)

This is the intro paragraph for your website where you can write a short welcome or description of what your department does. To replace this text, simply highlight this text with an html editor, delete, then paste in your own text. Or, if you feel comfortable looking at code, delete this text between the <p> and </p> tags and paste in your own. Just be sure that if it came from a Word document, that it was converted to "text only" in Notepad first, or it will bring in all sorts of nasty code.
