Welcome to the
GSD Site Builder
The GSD Site Builder is a WordPress platform that allows GSD faculty, staff, and student groups to create beautiful websites quickly, at low cost, and without needing a background in web development. Site administrators can create their own layouts using Gutenberg, a drag-and-drop editor that has been customized exclusively for the GSD. This site serves as your guide to the platform.
If you have questions about using GSD Site Builder, please contact [email protected].

Site Set Up
When your site is approved, GSD’s internal team will get your site set up on a server and provide you with access to your CMS.
Your site will be hosted on a secure server that our web team has access to, so your site will be monitored for downtime and security issues.
