Update 11/17/14

We are no longer offering individual or group training sessions for the Cascade Server. Submit your site changes by using the online Website Update Request Form and the Webteam will update your site for you.

Update 10/31/14

To incorporate NIU-template websites into the new homepage design, we will implement changes in manageable phases.

Phase 1: Update the cascading style sheets on the existing templates that will bring sites more in line with the current design. We expect this to be done by the end of the year. We'll notify site owners before we make that change. 

Phase 2: Convert the top 25 sites into the new template. These sites will be chosen based on audience and how closely associated the site is with the links on the NIU homepage.

Phase 3: Convert the remaining sites into the new template.
