How to Use the Site

Welcome to Our New Website!

Where can I find a link to myCampus?

In the upper left-hand corner of all site pages there is a menu called "Information For" that provides link sets for Current Students and Faculty & Staff. These links take you to new pages with audience-specific resources like myCampus, myMountMercy, your Google account and links to campus dining, activities, news and announcements.

I maintain a web site for a Mount Mercy department or office. How can I update my content?

We heard your frustrations with the old system and after testing several options with on-campus users, we chose a new content management system called Drupal. The Web Communications staff will send out invitations in January to begin Content Management System training. If you need changes made before then, contact us and we'll make them for you. Until then, you can get started by analyzing your current web content to determine what items need to be retained and perhaps updated; what items are no longer needed and should be removed; and what items are not currently available but should be.
