The purpose of the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) website is to provide
a medium for access to accurate and timely information regarding the community college’s
mission, its faculty, staff and students, its services and programs, and college-related
events. It provides access to local and global resources for teaching and learning,
as well as access to school services.
The Community College of Rhode Island home page and associated upper-level pages are
official publications of CCRI. Unless otherwise indicated, all text, photographs and
original graphics are copyrighted and should not be reproduced without written permission
from an appropriate college official.
Who may publish on the website

departments, administrative departments, college-sanctioned organizations or committees,
and official student organizations. Faculty and staff may publish personal pages.
The author bears full responsibility for the contents of his/her personal Web pages.
Each entity wishing to publish on the web is responsible for naming a Web Content Manager and submitting a Web Content Manager Form who will maintain that entity’s web pages. The Web Content Manager must be a permanent full or part-time CCRI employee. A vice president, dean, department chair, or director must approve the allocation
of this responsibility.
Responsible use of Social Media
The Community College of Rhode Island recognizes that social media is a powerful communication
tool to educate, inform and collaborate with its students, faculty, staff and alumni,
as well as members of the community. By posting information to social media sites,
CCRI expands its brand and extends its reach into the community. The purpose of using
social media communication channels by the CCRI Department of Marketing and Communications is to support the college’s mission, goals and programs by sharing news and information
as an extension of its website (www.ccri.edu). Official college pages (e.g., www.facebook.com/ccri1964) uphold CCRI’s established college policies of graphic standards and codes of conduct.
If a college department or program wants to augment its Web presence, it is encouraged
to make use of the department or program page on the CCRI website or establish a new
one by contacting their web content manager or email@example.com for assistance.
