Responsibilities

Content Creators

All content creators must be trained to use Cascade CMS, the University's content management system, in order to receive access. A Cascade user's guide will be available in the Public folder of the U drive soon.

Individuals who are charged with maintaining or creating web content for the Alfred University website are responsible for complying with all University, local, state and federal laws, regulations, policies and guidelines.

Content which the University deems to be in violation of these laws, regulations, policies or guidelines may be removed along with access to the offending page(s). Violators may also be prosecuted and/or disciplined.

All AU web content creators must be familiar with AU Web Standards, Visual Identity Standards and the Policy on the Use of Computing Facilities.

Web Team

The Web Team is responsible for making sure that all relevant standards, regulations and guidelines are carried out in support of the University's mission and goals.
