Edit Your Site
The University of Wyoming websites follow a decentralized site editor model, which
means the section under our main domain (uwyo.edu) is managed by the individuals known
as site editors. The site editors are able to gain access to edit the sections or
pages only after completing the CMS training. The trainings and the resources are available to all site editors to understand
and familiarize with our CMS system.
This page is created to support the academic and administrative units at the University
of Wyoming to build and maintain a beautiful and user friendly website.
