Introduction: About the SUNY New Paltz Web Site
Since its inception in 1995, the presence of SUNY New Paltz on the Web has grown quite dramatically, delivering thousands of pages to a global audience. It is evolving and has become an important tool for communicating with all of our New Paltz constituencies. Today, our Web site works to support and promote the university with sites that range from the top level pages presenting SUNY New Paltz to the world, to internal pages for our students, faculty and staff to conduct business online.
Much thought and hard work has gone into creating and maintaining the Web site in order to convey an image of professionalism and academic integrity that meets the needs of the university's diverse audiences. Issues of accessibility, accuracy of content, ease of use, and design are continuously explored and balanced by the professionals in the Office of Communication & Marketing, to create a site that serves the campus and its constituents, and continues to grow and evolve daily.
While all pages hosted on SUNY New Paltz Web servers must abide by all applicable university and campus policies, and the laws of the land, the level of required conformance to other guidelines and standards varies according to the type of page, as does responsibility for the support and maintenance of those pages. Content of these Web pages must not violate any federal or state laws, or the policies of the university, including those regarding copyright, harassment, or obscenity. In addition, Web pages must not be used for personal for-profit activities. Violators will be subject to the loss of their access privileges and removal of their sites.
The Office of Communication & Marketing will remove inappropriate content that resides on a campus Web server without prior notice. Inappropriate content includes anything the college believes does not support the academic mission of the institution or negatively impacts the reputation of the college.
"Official" pages are at the top level of the university's Web site (starting at www.newpaltz.edu). They provide an overview of the campus. The Web Management office is responsible for the content, structure, design and maintenance of these pages.
"Unit" pages refer to academic and administrative department Web sites. The Web Management Office creates and maintains most of these sites, but they also may be created and maintained by the individual unit, if arranged with the Web Management Office. Conformity to campus graphic standards is required for these pages so that there is a clear visual link and unified image presented between the departments and the university.
"Affiliated" pages are those published by campus organizations, faculty, staff and students, and are not considered "official" university pages. Personal/unofficial pages should be related to the individual's role (teaching, advising, research, service or administrative duties) at the university, but not give the impression that they are representing, giving opinions or otherwise making statements on behalf of the university. These pages should not create a volume of network traffic or computer load that disrupts or interferes with the normal activities of the wired campus community. All affiliated pages should carry the following disclaimer on the bottom of their home page:
SUNY New Paltz is not responsible for the accuracy or completeness of the contents of this unofficial page. The views and opinions expressed on this unofficial page are strictly those of the page author. Any comments on those pages should be directed to the page author(s).
Other policies and laws applicable to sites hosted on SUNY New Paltz Web servers include:
- NYS Policy Accessibility of State Agency Web-based Intranet and Internet Information and Applications, Policy P04-002 and Mandatory Standards (See the accessibility section for further details.)
- State University of New York - State University Campuses or Facilities Use of Computer Equipment or Services
- Copyright laws
- Intellectual property rights
- Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and www.newpaltz.edu/ferpa
