Website Change Policy
This policy covers the process for considering and acting upon website change requests from staff, leadership team, board members and faculty.
The purpose of this policy is to standardize the procedure for dealing with stakeholder requests to change University’s web content or structure. This policy does not cover updates to front page news items which will continue to be updated by the Outreach Department without further approval being required. This policy should not act as a deterrent to receiving change requests, requests should be encouraged to help keep the site fresh and up to date.
The weekly Leadership Team meetings are considered another tool to discuss and decide website changes on an as-needed basis. Staff members can fill a “Website Change Request Form”. This form is available in the shared folder for the staff members. Staff members can fill in the form and send them by email to Marketing and Outreach Department Heads. Minor changes to the website may be carried out without a formal communication to wider stakeholder audience.
A major website change is defined as any structural change, request for new page(s)/sections or large-scale edits to existing content or design.
A minor web change is defined as any small-scale web page edit such as fixing a typo or changing the tense of written content.
