The policies that will govern preparation, use, and maintenance of World Wide Web pages at the official Nazareth College site: www.naz.edu.
Nazareth College's web site has been established to provide accurate and timely information about the College to the outside community by means of the Internet, to aid in admissions work at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to enhance the general identity and understanding of the College.
The Nazareth College web site will consist of two sources of information:
The official Nazareth College web site will consist only of the two sources of information described above.
The College will not assist in and is not responsible for the development or posting of any other information on the Nazareth College site. A disclaimer to this effect will be posted prominently on the web site.
Development and maintenance of the Nazareth College web site will be coordinated in co-operation by the directors of Marketing and Communications, and Information Technology Services. Marketing and Communications is responsible for information posted on the Nazareth College home page and links, working in conjunction with the appropriate academic and administrative department heads.
In addition, the College will support the development of web pages for academic and administrative departments. The following procedures will be followed for development of these pages:
Marketing & Communications will scan pages periodically and notify department liaisons if their pages are outdated and need updating. Expired information that has not been updated within a month of this notification will be removed from the Nazareth site.
Information included on the College's web site must be suitable for distribution to the campus community and to the outside community. In general, the information should describe the College's academic programs, resources, policies and procedures, staff, upcoming events, and services available to students and the public.
Examples of suitable information are program descriptions, course descriptions and schedules, faculty rosters, calendars and announcements of upcoming events, official college policy statements, and college/departmental accomplishments and distinctions. In many cases, information suitable for posting can be taken from official college publications (e.g., admissions materials, undergraduate and graduate catalogs, departmental brochures). A task force of faculty representatives will define recommended content for the academic departments' pages.
Information that is not appropriate for posting includes confidential information, commercial advertisements, and material that is illegal. Copyrighted material may not be posted without permission of the copyright holder.
Marketing & Communications reserves the right to remove from the college's web site any information that is outdated, inaccurate, detrimental to the college, or otherwise inappropriate. The department liaison and supervisor (director, chair, or vice president) will be notified in such an event.
In addition, the College reserves the right to disable access to pages that are causing a negative impact on server or network performance.
Other institutions and organizations may be interested in establishing links to the Nazareth web site (e.g., organizations of which the college is a member institution, organizations/institutions with which the college collaborates on programs and activities, organizations that provide information to prospective students). Members of the Nazareth community who would like to recommend such links for the Nazareth site should forward their requests to Marketing & Communications, along with the Internet address of the requested link site.
Because information on the college's web site is accessible to anyone on the Internet, private and confidential information should not be posted.
Information Technology Services will make all reasonable efforts to ensure that information presented on the College's web site is secure from modification or deletion by anyone other than Web Office's staff, or by that designated departmental liaison(s) who has responsibility for maintaining that particular page.
