Who can use the service

  1. The Web CMS is available to UC Davis administrative units, colleges, schools and academic departments whose Web content is owned by the Regents of the University of California.

  3. All websites maintained in the Web CMS must be hosted on a campus-owned or contracted server.
  4. All websites maintained in the Web CMS must be permanent sites. Sites for one-time events, conferences, seminars will not generally be maintained in the web CMS.
  5. Websites for recognized campus organizations (PPM 270-05 - PDF) may use the Web CMS provided the sites adhere to all applicable campus policies and guidelines and to the terms and conditions in the Web CMS Terms of Use. These organizations may not execute a Web CMS Memorandum of Understanding but must instead be incorporated under an existing Web CMS client’s MOU who agree to sponsor the applying group (see 1 above).

Websites meeting the above criteria can use the Web CMS.

If your site doesn't meet these criteria, don't despair! The campus provides other Web resources to assist faculty, student clubs and others to successfully maintain their Web content. We have listed these in our Other Web Resources page.
