Website Maintenance and Development

University Communications strives to use technology to increase communication with the University's diverse audience base. Our primary objective is to assist in educating and supporting faculty, staff and students regarding the website and how it can better empower them to communicate and increase productivity.

Web Standards
The office works to increase the consistency of our web presence by implementing standardized logos, color palettes, typography, content and messages. By following these standards we can ensure that all pages are consistent and deliver content that is accessible to the largest possible audience and devices.

Web Site Updates and Development
The Office of University Communications handles all updates to the University's webpages. If you have edits to your departmental pages or if you need new webpages created for your department, please contact Kathy Nelson. If your department needs assistance collecting and dynamically displaying information (possibly using a database), for instance, please contact Eric Swearengin to discuss.

Page Examples:

Content Management
Keeping website content up-to-date is a shared responsibility between the office of University Communications and individual colleges, departments and offices. Website updates may be submitted via email to Kathy Nelson or departments may elect a representative who can be trained to make page edits through the website content management system (CMS). Training on the University CMS is held on a quarterly basis. For more information or to sign up for the next training, please contact Kathy Nelson. If you are already a CMS user and would like to login to the CMS or need more information about the CMS, please visit: www.uscupstate.edu/login
