UMKC Web Policy, Requirements and Recommendations

UMKC Web Site Policy

The University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) Web site is a major vehicle for presenting our campus to the world. It is part marketing tool, part information source, and it is accessible to anyone in the world, anytime, anyplace.

As such, all official University Web pages must adhere to the UMKC Web Site Policy, including Security Policy, Legal/Liability Policy and Technical and Content Requirements, regardless of where those pages are hosted.
All unofficial University Web pages must adhere to the UMKC Web Site Policy, including the Security Policy and Legal/Liability Policy, irrespective of where those pages are hosted.

Oversight and Management

The UMKC Web Executive Group (WEG) will oversee the enforcement and regulation of all elements of the UMKC Web site. Any exemptions or deviations from UMKC Web site policy pertaining to Security Policy, Legal/Liability Policy or Technical and Content Requirements must be approved by the WEG. All UMKC Web site policies and requirements remain in effect unless and until changed by the WEG.

The UMKC Web Advisory Group (WAG) will conduct periodic reviews of pages within the UMKC Web site to ensure accuracy, effectiveness and relevance in presenting a user-friendly, engaging and consistent Web presence. The WAG will also monitor compliance with UMKC Web site policy requirements. The Web Advisory Group will report its findings to the Web Executive Group. At the discretion of the WEG, UMKC Web pages found not to be in compliance may be removed from the UMKC Web site until measures are taken to bring pages into compliance.
