Content Management System
The University Content Management System (DNN) supports and serves the University faculty and staff, departments and divisions. We utilize the CMS system to communicate the visual appearance of the Clayton State University brand and to provide a consistent look and feel across all of our various departments. The websites template, colors and fonts have been branded and coded in the CMS. Any staff or faculty member have the opportunity to attend DNN training sessions to learn how to edit departmental pages. These training opportunities are held during the last Wednesday of the month. If you would like to attend a session, contact the Web Team.
Clayton State's website uses a style sheet declaring the font type (Arial, Helvetica) and font size. Be cautious of changing the font type and font size as it won't look consistent.
