Our Brand: How to Convey It.

 


Web Header and Footer Download

The University of Minnesota’s Brand Policy requires that all websites on the umn.edu domain include an approved web header and footer. (Not included in this requirement are umn.edu personal websites hosted by the University.)

The web header and footer, as well as the umn.edu domain, may only be used by a campus, college, unit, department, or center to conduct official University business. Header and footer code is available in the following:

If you have questions or comments about using the header and footer, please contact urweb@umn.edu.

GitHub

The updated headers and footers are available on GitHub. If you are unsure of how to use GitHub or compile Sass to CSS, you may want to have Template Builder write and compile your code.

See Web Header and Footer Requirements before making any alterations to the header and footer.

Drupal

New headers and footers are available to current Drupal site owners. If you are already using the base theme and have made no changes to the header and footer, you will be able to easily change to the updated headers and footers. Please work with central IT if you have any issues or questions about changing to the new headers in footers on your development or staging sites. The Drupal headers and footers will be pushed to the production environment after current Drupal sites have been updated and any and all issues have been resolved.

If you have questions about the use of the headers and footers in Drupal or need assistance updating your theme, please contact ucm@umn.edu. See Web Header and Footer Requirements before making any alterations to the header and footer.

Template builder

The Template Builder is an automated method for choosing options to build a customized header and footer for Twin Cities campus websites. This feature is for static HTML sites and includes the same options available in Drupal and GitHub. Header and footer code is compiled using Sass.

See Web Header and Footer Requirements before making any alterations to the header and footer.
