Drupal

CSUMB has been a Drupal campus since 2008, and we've used the open-source software framework to construct many of our campuses web applications:

  • csumb.edu
  • catalog
  • schedule
  • portal
  • directory
  • ecommerce
  • service learning placement system
  • IT wikipedia of applications, services, and servers

Drupal is a free software package that allows you to easily organize, manage and publish your content, with an endless variety of customization.

Awards

2012

Our "CSU Monterey Bay Mobile Website" project won a gold medal in the 2012 CASE District VII Awards of Excellence, in the category "Integrated Advancement Programs" and "Web Sites - Individual Web Sites," beating out Stanford University and our own CSU Office of the Chancellor.

2011

After a re-design of CSUMB.EDU in 2010, we went from a D in 2009 to an A+ in 2011 according to EDU Checkup, which also turned out to be the #1 ranking EDU site for 2011, (video review). Many thanks to Nick DeNardis for his reviews and White Whale Web Services for their beautiful work.

2010

We worked with White Whale Web Services out of Oakland CA to build themes for our new Drupal content management system. They had some pretty nice things to say about our team at CSUMB.
