Web Sites for Franklin College Departments, Centers, Institutes or Programs

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Franklin OT provides affordable fee-based websites using our Drupal Content Management System (CMS) service. Clients can choose between several supported themes.  These sites are available at a fraction of the cost of working with a third part vendor. There are service fees and web storage fees. Please see the Pricing area section below.

Benefits of Service: 

While it is not a requirement to use in-house web support for building your department website, it is highly recommended, when possible, due to ongoing support issues that arise when using an external vendor. Using Franklin College OIT Website services for your website offers you in-house on campus website support through our support ticket system.

Additionally, your site will be College branded, offering faculty, staff, students and other visitors a consistent experience throughout the Franklin College online experience.

And of course, working with Franklin College OIT Web Services will cost a fraction of what an external vendor would charge.

Requesting Use and Support: 

New Clients

Complete the Website inquiry form and choose “Department, Center, Institute or Program Website” for the kind of site you are requesting. Franklin College OIT Web Services will contact you to schedule a meeting to review your project needs.

Existing Clients

You should have received a URL to manage your site. Please login using your MyID and password. If you do not have the URL for managing your site, please submit a helpdesk ticket to request the correct information. If you have changes that can’t be made within the Drupal Content Management system, please detail the needed changes in a helpdesk ticket.
