Mon, 01/14/2013

LAWRENCE — The University of Kansas home page at, along with select second-level navigational and informational pages, has a new look today as part of KU's ongoing transition to a new, Drupal-based content management system. KU Today and KU News pages also were converted to the CMS template and sport a new, more modern look and organization by category.

The redesign did not affect popular links found at the top of the home page — Email,  Blackboard, Kyou and Enroll & Pay — while the A to Z is now found in the "KU Directory" menu (click on the crimson box on the upper right of the page) The Directory, found on every page on the CMS template, contains links to top online destinations and search boxes for academics, courses and library materials.

More information about the CMS conversion is available at, including a list of sites that already have been converted to the new system.

Please visit and explore the new web pages. Feedback is welcome and encouraged. Please send any constructive comments, and any reports of dead links or other errors, to
