Internet Oversight Committee

Our Charge

Guidance for the management of UNCG's online presence comes from the Internet Oversight Committee named by the Vice Chancellor for Information Technology Services, with advice from the Provost and other Vice Chancellors. The Internet Oversight Committee includes representatives from each major part of the University. Its duties include:

  1. Approving the standards for appearance and content of the University online presence, including accessibility, that must be met by each University Unit/Department with an online presence.
  2. Advising the Administrative Systems Committee and Chancellor's Executive Staff on issues related to the University online presence and proposing any policies and procedures that should be considered relating to the University online presence.
  3. Providing oversight for procedures employed by University Relations governing the University Website (Top-tier Unit) to ensure that Unit Web Site Requirements guidelines and standards are met and that content is current.
  4. Maintaining a list of individuals responsible for University Unit online content and receiving an annual statement of assurance from the representative that all Unit online content has been reviewed and is current and compliant.
  5. Providing guidance and standards, including accessibility, for University staff on appropriate use of online technologies, including social media outlets and mobile web page and application development.
  6. Working with the Administrative Information Security Committee as needed to address issues dealing with the use or collection of University data via online services or applications.
  7. Helping to promote the University online presence to campus and external constituencies, as appropriate.
  8. Monitoring national and international internet issues and new capabilities and services that may be of interest and benefit to the University online presence and proposing implementation in the UNCG external online presence as appropriate.

It continues to be the desire of the University that information provided via the Internet is accurate and consistent and that those who present University information do so freely and openly within the constraints of University policies and State and federal laws, including copyright laws.
