The Project site structure is intended to be flexible enough to accommodate a range of projects, initiatives, and centers, but you can easily edit the menu and pages if they do not fit your needs. Choosing the Project site preset will pre-populate your website with these menu links and pages: HOME, Overview, Activities, People, Resources, News & Events, About.
