Web Administration & Development

Content Management System .

OIT supports the content management system OU Campus from OmniUpdate that is being used to brand and unify the entire FAU web site. OmniUpdate is an essential tool in FAU's Branding Initiative.

University Communications & Marketing has asked that all web sites be developed through OU Campus. Any sites that cannot use OmniUpdate must provide written justification to the Creative Services department.

All areas of FAU and anyone using the Florida Atlantic University name including departments, groups, clubs and student organizations that wish to have a public web site at FAU need to contact Creative Services for approval of the initial site.

The process for requesting a new site is as follows:

  • Contact Creative Services to request a design template for a new site and to approve the URL (www.fau.edu/site_name) for the new site
  • Creative Services approves design template and forwards to OIT
  • OIT converts approved template and enters it into OU Campus
  • OIT schedules OmniUpdate training with departments, groups or individuals requesting a site

For help using OmniUpdate to develop your web site, refer to this User Guide.
For questions and inquiries regarding web standards, contact Creative Services at 561.297.1352.  A comprehensive guide to Web style can be found at www.fau.edu/publications. Make sure to also view FAU's Visual Standards Manual which provides  the University community and designers with the visual standards to be used for all printed, web and retail items.
