UVM is currently (2015) moving from a homegrown web templating system to the Drupal web content management system. UVM Drupal is being customized with the help of these guidelines to support the migration of academic websites to the Drupal system. These guidelines should also be applied to academic websites built outside of the UVM Drupal infrastructure.
UVM's web content management system provides a template –- a basic framework and design –- for department websites that can be customized to reflect a department's "personality" and unique offerings. Unique color schemes help provide a distinct visual identity from other departments.
The #1 brand of each and every website is that of the University of Vermont.
