We provide a content management system (Umbraco) for WVU Health Sciences websites, as well as design services, technical support and tools to help groups communicate effectively on the web.

Your communicators work closely with the Health Sciences web development team to create and edit websites.

Website Edits  #

  • Academic sites - Departmental pages are edited by either website editors who have been appointed/approved by the chair, dean or director of a department, or by the emailing the CMS Desk at To determine the website editor, contact the CMS Desk at
  • Clinical sites - Use the form on Connect for clinical website updates (login required). If you have questions, contact your school communicator.

Accessibility #

The content available on your website should be accessible to the widest range of people and devices as possible. Web accessibility is the inclusive practice of removing barriers that prevent interaction with, or access to websites, by people with disabilities. HSC ITS reserves the right to remove any content violating UR Accessibility Guidelines. Contact University Relations - Digital for information about accessibility training.
