Replace this text with an introduction to your department / division/ program, it’s mission and purpose. Keep it direct and simple; easy to understand for the average student or member of the public. Keep it friendly but professional; do not go into great detail, do not say “Welcome to..”, do not explain how to use the page.
This text area should not be more than 2-3 paragraphs long. If you have more content for your home page, it should go in the next text area below, with a subhead of some kind to separate it from the introduction and staff / office / hours section. You might want to include your program mission statement here, or somewhere below.
