Navigation for non-academic units

Navigation for non-academic unit sites is more flexible than for academic unit sites because their purpose varies. The following four sections are encouraged. Additional sections can be added but keep in mind that section names must fit in the top menu bar on computer and tablet devices. 

Non-academic sitemap


The home page might feature a slideshow, unit news, unit events, and other information you wish to highlight.


Create your own sub-sections within the About section in addition to the suggested pages listed below. Other sub-page suggestions are Overview, Dean's message, Mission & Values, History, Accreditation.

  • News: A list of your news articles (cherry picked from KU News).
  • Events: A list of your events (populated dynamically from the KU Calendar).
  • Contact: Contact information and a Google map of your unit's location.


People pages have two views: list view and detail view.

Lists contain a photo and a brief summary for each person. People can be grouped together in the list view by position, so that as an example, Faculty, Administration, Staff personnel can be grouped together on People list pages.

Detail pages are very flexible and in addition to a photo can contain very brief information or quite in-depth information about each person.


The Research section could be used to provide links to commonly used forms, documents, policies, or pages. The section might also be used to provide information on any free or for-pay services or clinics you offer to the public or the KU community.
