Web FAQs

What content management system does Ohio University use?

Ohio University adopted Drupal in 2019.

Drupal is a free, open-source web content management framework web content management system that is easy to use and scalable. Drupal provides a back-end framework for at least 2.3% of all websites worldwide – ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites.

After conducting a review of several systems, the Web Services team decided to move forward with Drupal hosted on the Acquia Cloud Platform based on the following criteria:

  • Security
  • Architecture
  • Maintenance

  • Ease of migration
  • Experience with Higher Education Institution
