Web and Digital Communication Policies
UMSL's web and digital communication policies help maintain consistency in presenting university information and ensure the university’s digital presence accurately reflects the university’s brand identity. Official and publicly viewable unit websites (e.g., division, college, school, department, center, program or organization) must adhere to Web and Digital Communication Policies.
