At our institution, our canvas instance is starting to be used for non-academic purposes, which is great, but that means that sub-theming is going to need to happen.

It would be pretty cool to have a different theme for each department, even if that meant changing some of that text on the left hand side to reflect the program of the course, but for now, I like this solution. It separates academic courses and courses that support students.
