  • UIT-managed WordPress installation with a controlled list of WordPress plugins and themes
  • C&PA managed look and feel of the design integrating the new York Brand
  • Passport-York authentication for blog administrators
  • An integrated user database allows users to have access to multiple blogs
  • Simple version control allows you to view or restore earlier versions of posts and pages
  • Note: before getting a website you must submit your name to the website listserv to receive updates
