What types of themes (i.e. look-and-feel) does CAEN offer for WordPress sites?

As part of the WordPress web publishing service, CAEN offers two "Responsive" site themes, both designed to resemble the look-and-feel of the main Michigan Engineering web presence, and be more mobile-friendly (i.e. more responsive regardless of browser or device display size). While the look of the themes are similar, the information that can be displayed in the header and footer may vary. One theme is designated mainly for Michigan Engineering-related sites, and the other is designed for sites with a more general University of Michigan presence.

Each WordPress site that is part of CAEN's web publishing service must have one of the themes applied to it when CAEN creates the site. It is not possible for individual sites to create their own themes, or change the attributes of the theme.
