These include the UAF homepage and secondary pages, the Cornerstone news and information website, the chancellor's website, the Admissions website and more.

How we can help you


University Relations can help university departments produce professional, high-quality, attractive, well-written websites. All new requests for website review should be directed to the University Relations request form.

Website review

  • Review for compliance with the web guidelines including correct banner usage, UAF logo usage, W3C accessibility guidelines, etc.
  • Advance notice is appreciated. Fill out the University Relations request form to schedule a website review.
  • Turnaround time varies depending on workloads, but projects can generally be turned around within three working days.

What we need from your department

  • Your project should be complete and accurate when you give it to us.

  • Give us advance notice of your project, what it is and when it will be available for review. Once a schedule is set, if you miss agreed-upon deadlines, your project will have to be rescheduled depending on University Relations workload.

  • Tell us the goal of the project, who the audience is and how your piece will be distributed.

  • Send the URL of the not-yet-live site. We will provide comments via email.
