University of Oklahoma Web Guidelines

To the OU Web Community,

From the ever increasing number of prospective students to the hundreds of thousands of alumni across the globe, the University of Oklahoma website serves as a window to the unprecedented developments we are making together. The efforts and leadership of the Web Communications, Marketing and New Media department have ushered in many advances and improvements in this area.

As we continue our efforts to create an aesthetically pleasing and functional website, it is important that we are communicating and presenting the distinct aspects of the university in a consistent manner. For this reason, we are pleased to now offer a Web Guide created with the help of several OU departments to provide style and design guidelines for developing Web pages on the OU domain. This development guide will help ensure that each of the many different areas of the university communicate as a collective force that drives the excellence of the University of Oklahoma.

In today’s technically advanced world, our website is often the first opportunity that we have to show others the many examples of excellence that has brought OU recognition as a pacesetter in American public higher education.

Thank you for your commitment to transforming our website into one of the best in the nation. Above all, thank you for your dedication to the University of Oklahoma and all that you do.
