Authoritative Shared Content

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.
