Outdated information is often worse than less information. The most critical things to keep up to date are:
Delegate someone in your department to be the point person for your web site. Check with your department or division's administrative assistant—many are already set up as web editors and can often devote more time than faculty.
The web editing tool doesn't give all users complete control over formatting and visuals. We work with you to make sure your site accomplishes what it needs to.
If you have questions, big ideas for your pages or want to meet about reorganizing your site, get in touch!
