Welcome to Project Ponderosa

The University of Montana has developed the Ponderosa Template to improve consistency for web visitors while empowering content creators.  The design highlights the site content and allows bold visuals to set the tone of each website. We have taken an iterative approach for development and roll-out, helping to ensure users will have regular access to new tools and features.  Find out what Project Ponderosa has to offer.
