University Communications, in consultation with university administration, determines which content should be provided by a single authoritative source and the responsible office. Once that is established, content categorized as authoritative must be used from this shared repository; it cannot be rewritten for local use.
Examples of authoritative content include tuition rates or academic calendars.
To use this shared content in your site, we encourage you to use the Shared Content Reference component.
Any author can view all of this shared content in the Websites console, under /content/authoritative/.
Normally this content will be under the control of offices which are responsible for maintaining its integrity.
If you have concerns about the currency or accuracy of any information in this area, please contact the DCT Help Desk.
To update or add to this content, you will need express access. Contact the DCT Help Desk for details.
Several offices have been developing content in this area, including University Police, Facilities, Student Accounts and the Graduate School as well as some legal statements and the University Policy Library. We will document content as requested by these offices.
Usage: For placement on select pages/sites where we know barrier-free access might be an issue. Must have a strong business case and written authorization from the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion to utilize.
With this prior approval, authors can provide a Shared Content Reference to this module, immediately followed by appropriate contact details (authored on your own site).
Usage: For placement on select pages/sites where we reference any branch of the United States armed forces whether it be written or visual.
In order for any piece of shared content to function properly, there should not be any blank elements or incomplete links in the page (i.e., a photo component without a photo in it or an incorrect link).
