    d. Click Create Button

    4. Delete original view

    5. Create another view just like above using:
    a. Change "Owner:" to University of choice
    b. Change "Duplicate View From:" to page of choice
    c. Enter "Code:" (Whatever the view you just deleted was called)
    d. Click Create Button

    6. Delete COPIED view

    7. Edit Newly created view:
    a. Change View Name to: (appropriate title - ex. Services Page)
    b. If needed, change Description back to original description
