Web Publishing Service

CAEN offers a Web Publishing Service to the College of Engineering, comprised of both WordPress and Google Sites for managing content. Depending on the type of group, department or individual, varying levels of service are available.

This service is provided at no-cost to eligible participants within the College of Engineering, so there are restrictions on a website’s themes and plugins that can be supported or maintained by CAEN.

 

 

Administrative Units
Any administrative unit within the College of Engineering is entitled to use CAEN’s Web Publishing Service. Administrative units are entitled either to one site for all of their web needs, or several sites – one for each project or purpose. All sites that are administrative in nature are entitled to Tier 1 support.

Research Labs and Centers
Any research lab or center that has an affiliation with the College of Engineering is entitled to use CAEN’s Web Publishing Service. Each lab or center is entitled to a single public site. Additionally, each lab or center may also request a single protected/intranet site that will be part of our Google Sites offering. All research-related sites are entitled to Tier 2 support, which includes edit and update support as part of the service.

Each faculty member is entitled to a single personal site, in addition to a site for the research lab or center they direct (as described above). All faculty-related sites are entitled to Tier 2 support, which includes edit and update support as part of the service.

Staff
CAEN’s Web Publishing Service is not available to staff for personal or group websites. If the purpose of a site is related to either administrative or research needs, a representative from a group described above must make the request so entitlement information can be verified.

Student Organizations
Any College of Engineering Sponsored Student Organization (SSO) or Volunteer Student Organization (VSO), as verified by the Maize Pages, may request a Google Site as part of CAEN’s Web Publishing Service (WordPress sites are not available to student organizations). Each student organization is entitled to one site for their web needs.
