Keystone College Policies
Web and Content Management Policy
The web is an essential source of information and a communication medium for all College audiences: current and prospective students, faculty, parents, alumni, and media. Our website is a medium of communication that defines who we are today and who we will be in the future.
As a collaborative group, with representation from each division and department of the College, the Web Committee will develop and implement the strategic web vision for the College.
The Faculty representative serves on the committee for a two year term (based on Academic calendar year, June 1-May 31), and their replacement will be voted in by faculty senate.
Each committee member is responsible for maintaining their department or office web pages, keeping content up-to-date and following guidelines established by the Web Committee. Members are expected to attend monthly update meetings and communicate updates from those meetings back to their respective department or office.
Editors and Publishers
Some members of the committee are Content Editors, and some members are Content Publishers. Publishers can create content in the Content Management System (CMS) and publish it live to the web site. Editors can create content but are not allowed to publish the content directly to the site, it is directed to their assigned publisher to upload for them.
Some members sit on the committee to represent their department, but have no Editor or Publishing rights.
There are members of the committee that have other College staff members that “report” to them as Content Editors, but are not part of the web committee.

Content Management System (CMS)
The CMS is the system that stores and displays official College web content. Management and use of the CMS will comply with all official policies of the College, including but not limited to, discrimination and harassment policies, compliance with all federal, state, and local laws, statutes, and regulations, brand standards, confidentiality of records, positive data security and appropriate use of computing facilities. Any official College information made available to external users is subject to review by the College to ensure consistency with laws and College policies.
Any one wishing to make Web Site changes or updates can do so by contacting their department/division web committee representative, content editor or publisher for that department. Any new pages should be submitted through the IT Help Desk ticketing system; submit your IT Ticket request as a Web Content request to Shannon Williams. Any requests for new web pages will be brought to the committee for discussion and approval. Decisions on where to place the page within the navigation of the web site will be made by the committee at that time.
