On the heels of our recent Drupal 9 release of Rain CMS, we are excited to officially announce the beta release of our Rain University platform, RainU. RainU CMS is a Drupal-based development platform made just for higher education. Colleges and universities can now launch new sites faster with full, flexible control over content.

 

The RainU CMS Theme

The RainU theme is based on the main Rain base theme but adds additional features that are relevant for university websites. The navigation and content have been staged to help content authors get started quickly. Some of the new features added to RainU are the event and quote carousels, as well as more components for highlighting content.

With Rain University, we give content authors the freedom and flexibility to build robust pages using a library of pre-stocked components (called “paragraphs” in Drupal). The Rain Admin UX offers many improvements over the stock Drupal admin which makes the overall experience more intuitive for editors.
