Drupal at the College of Life Sciences

The College of Life Sciences at the Unviersity of Dundee is one of the largest and most productive research institutes in Europe. With over 900 members of staff from over 50 countries our community is as diverse as our reputation is global.

The College is split into two schools with one focusing on the teaching of students, whilst the other is focused on research. Within the research school it is further split into 12 divisions, each of which is made up of individual groups which total over 100 in all. The College employs one web developer, one web designer and one content editor to work with and manage websites covering all these groups/divisions/schools and the College in particular. A wide variety of information is generated centrally that applys to all these areas ranging from news items and events, to vacancies and awards.

Our primary ideal that has driven development of our current drupal based CMS is to centralise information but allow that information to appear on the individual sites owned by the schools/divisions/groups.
