With budget cuts and rising expectations, higher education websites have become a challenging balancing act of function and affordability. Late in 2016, we set out to build a website solution that would leverage a CMS to create a repeatable, flexible website solution that meets current expectations in higher ed clients, and leaves room for them to make it their own -- without requiring custom development for each client. We also wanted to ensure that it could be deployed for under $50,000; put the work of managing and maintaining the site into the hands of the content team; and have a low-recurring cost to the client.

Progressive decoupling, a concept outlined last year in Dries Buytaert’s first post about decoupled Drupal, is a compelling approach to building Drupal's front end where content editors, site assemblers, and front-end developers maintain contiguous experiences.
