The WordPress Menu user Guide explains how sub-menus typically work in WordPress:

Notice that "Content Strategy" and "SEO" are indented under "Wordpress Migration."

GSU's custom themes allow for another way to include sub menus.  By clicking on the down arrow , you can access the Sub Menu drop down list:


In the Sub Menu drop down list, the user selects from other menus created for the page.  In this example, the "Identity" menu is a menu created by the user: 

Selecting "Identity" in the Sub Menu drop down list adds this menu's items as sub-menu items, and looks like this on the page:

If the menu will have a lot of menu and sub-menu items, creating multiple menus and selecting them in the Sub Menu drop down list may be helpful in keeping the menus well-organized.
