Strategic Statement

The University's website is based on the Drupal open source content management system. Drupal is playing a growing role as a core platform for sustaining and building campus communication and information services.  In this role Drupal must be secure and fault-tolerant, and developers must be able to quickly add high value features and upgrades in response to new and changing campus needs.


Information Services will redesign Drupal's infrastructure onto dedicated web servers to automate and manage configurations and to optimize responsiveness, security, upgrades, and development processes. We will also improve migration processes and prioritize content types and features that meet broad needs and speed up migration across units. We will expand the OSU Drupal community to optimize planning and best practices.
