Content Management Systems (CMS)

Cascade CMS

NMSU uses content management systems (CMS) to collaboratively create, edit, review, and publish various kinds of material for display on the web. There are two active content management systems being used at NMSU, but our team officially supports Cascade CMS.

Cascade CMS is the enterprise platform offered and managed by the WebComm team. It provides an easy resource for both novices and HMTL experts to use for creating branded websites, consistent with the NMSU’s central branding efforts. By using the central CMS, individuals can create more effective content, integrating their content with modules and resources shared among the rest of the University.


WordPress is our enterprise internal facing platform and is managed by the ICT Systems Administration team. WordPress websites are hosted in the NMSU private network and are only accessible when connected to the network or from an on-campus location.
