The Director of Communications serves as the campus webmaster and coordinates the university's web presence with the Office of Information Technology Services. The university provides a content management system (CMS) so that designated campus publishers can access information and assist University Relations in keeping website content up-to-date and correct.
All publishers to the website should strive to keep their information consistent with the existing look and feel of the website and should refer to the university’s Web Standards & Style Guide document and Graphic Standards & Style Guide (available, right column) for matters of permitted colors, fonts, logos, and other matters of writing, punctuation, proper usage of academic names and terms, etc.
Please visit our "Publishing on the University Website" page, if you need to:
- become a publisher to the website
- request that someone in your department be designated a publisher
- get publishing training
- get help with specific publishing tasks - training documents and videos available there
If you do not have a department publisher, or your department needs additional assistance, please submit a Job Request Form to University Relations. Your requests will be responded to by web designer Marsha Ahrenkiel and/or digital designer Julia Easton.
