EHE Themed Website Request

Our Standard Theme Websites allow units to get up and going quickly with their own website and still leverage the EHE and Ohio State brand. Built with a Content Management System (CMS), WordPress, it empowers units to manage their own content while maintaining a strong tie to the college.

How do I get Started?

Complete the service request form.

What’s Included

Basic Service

  • A link (when the site is complete) from the main EHE website to your site.
  • A website leveraging one of the EHE themes. All content must be provided and placed on the site by the requester.
  • WordPress training is available by request.

Optional Service

Standard Theme Websites also allow EHE units to engage approved outside firms (if Desired) that leverage EHE’s Web Design Framework. This allows for limited unit autonomy while still maintaining a strong tie to the larger EHE community

Units seeking to engage an outside firm must first obtain access credentials to the hosting environment and approval from EHE OIT BEFORE working with an approved outside firm. 

Eligibility

  • Funded Research Projects
  • Centers
  • College Offices

Requests for sites must be made by the lead of the unit (Directors, Chairs, Program Chairs, Associate Dean etc)

Special Considerations

OIT limits the number of WordPress plugins available on our standard theme websites.

Customers should consider leverage outside help for content before engaging in design work. We find that most customers can easily create great looking sites but struggle with having enough content.

Timeline

Varies depending on request. Customers should allow up to five days for site creation and access to upload content. Customers seeking to partner with outside firms should allow for significantly more time.
