Organizations creating pages should provide links, if necessary, to pages containing authoritative information outside their areas of responsibility (i.e. policies, admissions, University mission and history, etc.) rather than creating the pages themselves. This is to ensure that the most up-to-date and accurate information is being provided.
Careful attention to spelling, grammar, punctuation and word use is required.
Pages located on university servers may not be used to promote commercial activity, personal business, non-profit organizations and/or religious groups (except those organizations approved by the Office of Student Affairs) or to promote personal financial gain, except as may be permitted by other University policy or regulation.
DSU pages should not contain confidential university information or student information covered by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) unless adequate security measures are in place to restrict access to authorized persons.
