Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania is one of 14 state universities that comprise the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. Founded in 1871, Shippensburg University enrolls students from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Mid-Atlantic region, the United States, and various foreign countries. Shippensburg is a comprehensive university offering bachelor's and master's degree programs in the colleges of arts and sciences, business, and education and human services.
Implementing Ektron for the Authoring Experience
“I came into Shippensburg at around the same time that the University decided to implement a formal content management system,” says Justin Sentz, Director of Information Services at Shippensburg. “At the time, how web content was created, maintained and updated at Shippensburg was a bit all over the place. People were using anything from Notepad to Dreamweaver. The lack of a coordinated solution resulted in inconsistent branding and messages.”

“We took a look at a number of CMS solutions, with our committee focused on looking for the best CMS authoring experience, and Ektron came out on top.”

“Today we have what you could characterize as a Distributed Content Management environment,” Sentz continues. “We have over 450 content users using the Ektron system. That number includes students, faculty, staff, and administrators. The concept of Content Management in general and Ektron as a content management system specifically has been very well received on campus. The user-friendliness of the Ektron system has really been what’s made the CMS such a positive experience for people.”
