The USU web site is comprised of all centrally managed university pages as well as some resources not maintained by the USU webmaster (i.e. LRC, MedPix, various Centers, etc). The webmaster works in coordination with the Office of External Affairs to ensure that information located on this web site is accessible, accurate, consistent and up-to-date. We welcome constructive feedback regarding content at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Section 508 Accessibility
Ensuring that information on our web site is fully accessible to people, including those who have disabilities, is the law. This includes all content published to our site.
Word and Acrobat documents submitted for publication are tested using in-application tools, and must pass accessibility checks at 100% to be published to the USU web site. Documents that do not pass accessibility checks will be required to be updated and be FULLY accessible before publication. Pagemasters should test the files before submitting for publication, even if a previous accessible version had been published.
A USU accessibility reference is available on the One-Stop web site under the End-User Support Library:
(This file replaces two documents, "Check Accessibility Tools", and "USU and Accessible Documents")
Removal of Personally Identifying Information
Information on the USU web site may not contain personal information such as marital status, children, personal contact information, social security numbers, etc. Professional information such as faculty Bios or CVs, and work contact information, may be published to this public web site, but is not required.
Pagemasters are trained in the Drupal system to update content for their department or organization. Some Pagemasters may also be assigned (per their organization) to work with National Faculty profiles.
Pagemasters should review the following
- Drupal resources (including how to get started as a pagemaster)
- USU web guidelines
- Accessibility information (see paragraph above and link to reference)
