Why governance?

Our website is often the first impression people have of the university, whether they arrive through a search, social media, or a print or digital ad campaign. Governance provides a set of guidelines and standards to help site admins, communicators and others with web responsibilities promote clear, consistent messaging and imagery across and its subsites. Governance also aims to ensure our pages are up to date and easy to navigate.

The process

Academic Technology and Communications and Public Affairs have been working together to implement web governance at UNH.
