Robin Sutherland of web coordinator's office providing templates for UVic standard site.
Stewart will take those templates and create site within them to meet objectives. Will also use project to become familiar with the templates and with the Contribute editor, specifically testing Contribute's abilities with php. Content similar to current, but updated where necessary and centralized where possible.
Andrew Rippin and Jennifer Lefler already maintaining current site (using Contribute) and intend to continue to do so as much as possible.
Jennifer and Andrew willing to apply their current knoweldge of content editing to this new site and to learn enough to do that.
