Mobile-Friendly Templates

We are in the process of converting current websites using the university's branded templates in Cascade Server to responsive web design (RWD) templates. RWD templates make the websites display optimally for the device on which they are being accessed, including mobile phones and tablets. The design of the page is flexible so that the screen resolution, image sizes and page layout structure change based on the size of the screen. Learn More >
