The website is one of the university’s most important communication and marketing tools, particularly with prospective students. Web Communications provides vision and support for the design, development, and maintenance of usu.edu. Web communications works with other web managers and developers on campus to establish and maintain the quality and consistency of the USU web presence.
USU Web Templates

The USU web templates are available on the USU web server and on USU's content management system (CMS), OU Campus, managed by the IT Web and Design team.
