Student Club/Org. Web Space Procedures | Web Development

Any student club sponsored by NSU may create and maintain its own web page. A designated club member possessing the requisite computer skills will be appointed as "webmaster" for the club. The webmaster will be responsible for creating and maintaining the club web page with approval from the Office of Student Affairs or COM Student Services. The webmaster will execute the following steps to begin the process:

  1. Retrieve and print a copy of the Information Provider Agreement (IPA) form.
  2. Read and agree to the terms stated in the form. All club web pages must conform to the policies stated in the IPA. Obtain signatures on the form from the webmaster, the club faculty advisor, and the Dean of Student Affairs. If the club is part of the College of Medicine, the Director of Student Services at COM will sign the Dean/Director portion instead of the Dean of Student Affairs.
  3. Send the completed form to the Web Team in OIT. The Web Team will create the computer environment necessary for the webmaster to begin work. The Web Team will send the webmaster the relevant technical information via electronic mail. The webmaster may then begin work on the club web page.
  4. Once the club web page is ready to go online, the webmaster will request the Office of Student Affairs to review the web page. Once approved, the club web site will then be active and available via the Internet.

The club webmaster will be responsible for maintaining the club web page and must pass this responsibility to a new club webmaster when s/he leaves the University. This will require the new club webmaster execute steps 1-4 (above) again.

Note: Clubs/Organizations may request a shortened URL for their club web address (re: www.nova.edu/myclub)
