Guidelines for EKU Web Pages
The current EKU web template (web10) is required for all official university web pages.
These guidelines are for maintaining and growing EKU web spaces.
- An EKU Web Contributor is anyone who maintains or creates official EKU Web content.
- The EKU Web has both official and personal web content.
- Official sites are published by a campus, school, department, or administrative unit. (See EKU Web Accessibity Policy)
- Personal pages or sites are the sole responsibility of their authors and reside in www.people.eku.edu/lastf/ or http://studentweb.eku.edu/first_last/.
- EKU Web Contributors are responsible for maintaining official EKU web content.
- Faculty, staff, and students are solely responsible for their respective personal web pages.
- EKU Web Communications is responsible for providing accessible and standards-compliant web page templates for official EKU web content and for maintaining certain high-visibility web spaces and EKU web apps.
- Official EKU web pages and sites will adhere to these Guidelines for EKU Web Pages, and are required to follow the EKU Visual Identity Guide and comply with the EKU Web Accessibility Policy.
- To ensure a common brand and consistency, all administrative offices, colleges, and academic departments will use the university-approved web page templates.
- Each university page will have a designated "EKU Web Contributor" email link in the footer. This applies as well to club and student organization web spaces.
- All personal student, faculty, and staff pages must adhere to the EKU Code of Ethics.
- Use of web disk space and links from the EKU Web is a privilege, not a right, and can be revoked by EKU at any time for any of the following reasons:
- Violation of the EKU Ethics Code
- Failure to maintain pages
- Failure to follow the EKU Visual Design Guide or EKU Web Accessibility Policy
- Departments have web disk space quotas and individual faculty and staff have individual quotas. Department quotas are separate from individual quotas. Quotas increase as more web disk space becomes available.
- To change the location/name of an existing official EKU web page:
This procedure prevents dead links from occurring and keeps users from visiting outdated pages with incorrect information.
- EKU Web Contributors are responsible for providing EKU Web Communications the current location/name and the proposed new location/name.
- Once EKU Web Communications has confirmed the change, the corresponding web contributor is responsible for placing the page at the new location and removing it from its old location.
- Inquiries regarding the content of specific EKU pages will be emailed to the given pages' respective web contributor email linked in the page footer.
- Requests for new web links, content, or interactive services (e.g., links, online voting, custom applications) should be emailed to the Director of EKU Web Communications no later than 1, 3, and 8 weeks, respectively, prior to the time when they are needed.
Larger projects may require more lead time.
- Club and student organizations must contact EKU Student Life to place their pages on the EKU Web.
- In general, departments are not encouraged to set up their own web servers.
