The Academic Pillars Feature is a "slider type" feature for highlighting different areas or stories of interest on the homepage of site. This feature is comprised of two sections. The first and most prominent section being the "Academic Pillars Main" and the second is the "Academic Pillars Stories" section.

The "Academic Pillars Main" section uses a large image and text overlay to show an engaging item that we want to promote. The "Academic Pillars Stories" section is used to highlight upcoming events or tertiary stories that we want to also promote up front and center on the homepage.
