SaintPaul.edu is an essential source of information for current students, future students, past students, College employees, community partners and employers. It is critical for the College to provide accurate, timely and appropriate content on the website.
Each department, office or program is responsible for appointing a person who will maintain and update the content on their respective pages. The appropriate College Leadership Team Member or designee must approve content.
Website Content Review
The website content designee is expected to review and update the webpage(s) as needed, minimally once per term. The person responsible for reviewing the webpage must submit substantive changes to the appropriate authority for approval. See list of content experts/owners here.
To implement changes or updates on a webpage, content designees must complete the Web Request Form. The Marketing Department receives the request, edits and proofs the content, and reviews for accuracy to the best of its ability and knowledge. After proofing and editing, the marketing department forwards the web page updates or changes with approval to the webmasters. The webmasters then update the page, and notify the submitter that the request has been completed.
Please allow at least three working days to process requests involving minor changes/updates to current content.
The timeframe for completion is dependent on the complexity of the project and prioritizing of other requests received.
To help ensure timely completion of your Web Request, please do the following:
- review your submitted materials for accuracy of information, days and dates;
- clearly mark and indicate changes/edits to be made
- check your spelling, punctuation and grammar;
- make sure the URL you provide to us is the URL of the page that needs the update;
