World Wide Website Policy
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.
Pages linked to the CCRI home page and upper-level pages may be created by academic 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 CCRI employee. A vice president, dean, department chair, or director must approve the allocation of this responsibility.
The Community College of Rhode Island recognizes that social media can be an effective tool for communicating with students, faculty and 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 Web site (www.ccri.edu). Official college pages (i.e. www.facebook.com/ccri1964) uphold CCRI’s established college policies of graphic standards and codes of conduct.
If a department, group or program wants to augment their Web presence, they are encouraged to make use of their department page on the CCRI website or establish a new one by contacting their site IP or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. The process for faculty, staff and students who wish to distribute news and information on official college social media sites is the same as submitting information to other college communication channels like Crier, MyCCRI, etc. (http://www.ccri.edu/marketing/internalpub.html) Announcement requests may be sent to email@example.com for distribution on the appropriate college channels.
When using an official college social media channel, be mindful that all posted content is subject to review in accordance with CCRI’s institutional policies. Faculty, staff and students are responsible for the content they post.
No one, including any member of the CCRI faculty, staff or student body, is permitted to create a page on any social media site that purports to be an official page of any college department, division or organization. CCRI logos, photos or other copyrighted material may not be used without the written permission of the college.
