Web Process

Cascade (WebCMS)

There are more than 200 Wesleyan websites currently maintained by our Web Content Management System (CMS), Cascade.  Beginning in 2009, Wesleyan University migrated all websites under the university domain to the Cascade CMS to offer a sustainable solution for maintenance, updating and training to our decentralized website owners and editors.  

Web Services Staff maintain the CMS and offer monthly training sessions for new users as well as theme-based training for our current web editors. Cascade is a flexible tool that allows our departmental users to continue to edit in a familiar WYSIWYG interface even as we move the website display into a responsive framework.  


Web Services provides online Cascade training available 24/7 through documentation and video tutorials (see links below).  Hands-on basic Cascade training is held as needed, as well as theme-based training for current web editors.  We also use this training time to answer any specific questions you may have about your website.  To be added to the training schedule please send a request through our service support system by going to http://service.wesleyan.edu

The University Web Administrator will contact you to schedule the training.
