Department Web sites must use the UVM Web Publishing System

The UVM web team developed the UVM Web Publishing System several years ago in order to provide an easy method of standardizing UVM's web appearance across the institution. The College has taken this effort one step further in that we require that all our departments

  • It is a standard understood and supported by the CAS Computing Services Office, the UVM Web Team, the Helpline, and the Center for Teaching and Learning.
  • Training on web site design, maintenance and the web template in general is available from the UVM Web team. Therefore new webmasters can get the training they need in order to quickly pick up where the last left off.
  • Because the web publishing system is the UVM-wide standard, any changes to the appearance of the UVM web presence will automatically apply to your site, eliminating the need for some maintenance.

The alternative to using the web template is: a chaos of Web sites that are not easily identifiable as belonging to UVM let alone to the College of Arts and Sciences; department webmasters forced to scrap and completely redo department sites because the old webmaster didn't fully document how to maintain their site, etc.
