Modern Campus CMS

Towson University uses Modern Campus CMS as its content management system (CMS). Modern Campus CMS is designed for institutions of higher education. 

Modern Campus CMS users are assigned specific roles to maintain a controlled workflow and ensure message accuracy. These roles are: unit leaders, content owners and content contributors. Unit leaders communicate their content goals to their content owners. Content owners make certain that these goals are accurately communicated online and crafted with a high level of quality. Within the CMS they review and approve all content added by their content contributors. Content contributors are responsible for adding and editing content to their assigned webpages.

To get access to Modern Campus CMS you must first be approved for permissions by contacting Ashley Arnold, , and then attend Modern Campus CMS training.
