Each page of your Web site must have a descriptive title (using the <TITLE> tag) that includes the name Washburn University.

If there is content on your Web site that is date or time specific, it must be kept current.

If your site is within the Content Management System, the university webmaster will work with you on navigation and implementation within the university web design template.

Each page of your Web site must meet ADA compliance standards for access by persons with disabilities. In particular, each page must meet the accessibility standards indicated in Washburn University Official Web Sites--Accessibility and Quality Checklist.
