It's not unusual to see these little learning labs at big universities
try Drupal or Joomla or Wordpress on their own and then abandon the
sites the next week. All kinds of factors come into play in how that
happens (low hanging fruit, funding, communities not well suited to or
uninterested in content management, managed as a student project,
started as a pet project by a dean who heard Drupal was cool, etc.).
