Just keep moving forward.

The UVM home page and the "Top Tier" overview pages, released in the Spring of 2023, serve as guideposts to a broad range of distibuted UVM web content. Design elements from these pages will be available on pages throughout the website, from colleges and schools to administrative units.

Versatile paragraphs

Pages are constructed using a flexible set of content-driven design components, called paragraphs in Drupal. Instead of having a fixed template for pages, paragraphs can be combined in various ways that best present the topic of the page. These paragrphs will serve as building blocks for most pages in the redesigned UVM.EDU.

Here are some of the paragraphs that will be available for use on both group home pages and basic pages.
