Our Websites

At Mizzou, we strive to be responsible communicators. Part of that responsibility entails making sure Mizzou websites contain accurate, accessible information that follows set standards and is easily identifiable as part of the Mizzou identity.

MU Web developers are expected to make sites that are easy to read, intuitively navigable, accessible, aesthetically pleasing, compliant with university policies and reflective of the university's values.

Anyone who creates, manages, edits, develops content for or otherwise contributes to an official University of Missouri website should follow the policies set by the Division of University affairs. Websites are subject not only to campus guidelines and system rules but also to state and federal laws regarding accessibility, privacy and intellectual property. All websites are required to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines.

Read these policies and guidelines. Learn them. Follow them. Check back frequently for updates.
