Editing Section Customizations

You can change the text, colors and photos that appear in the banner for your department or office through a subsection (folder) called Section Customizations.

Section Customizations controls the content in the banner and footer of your page. You may already have a Section Customization folder set up in your department. If so, skip the next step.

To add:

  • To the right of your top section (e.g., Marketing Communications or MFA in Arts Leadership) select Action-Create Section
  • In the General Tab that follows, give the section the name Section Customizations
  • Uncheck the box that says Show in Navigation
