  • Purpose

  • The purpose of the web sliders on the audience pages is to allow parties within the university to broadcast audience-specific messaging to either the student body or the faculty and staff of UVU. These sliders serve to inform each particular audience as well as to call users to perform an action (e.g. “learn more,” “apply now,” or “click here”). All communication through these web sliders aims to further University initiatives.
  • The following guidelines are established by SWAT and upheld by the University Web Coordination Team and SWAT. They exist to ensure the ongoing value of the advertising space of the sliders on UVU’s audience pages. Adherence to all guidelines regarding content, purpose, design, and timing are essential to the University community’s ability to develop and maintain the value of the space to advertisers and their audiences.
  • Approval Process

    • Submissions will be received and reviewed by the Web Coordination Team. Any submissions requiring additional attention to guidelines will be rejected with notice to its respective submitter. Notice of rejection will include reasoning for rejection and may suggest resubmission of a revised version.
    • Review process
    • Weekly, the Web Coordination Team will meet to review the pending submissions for the sliders. Submissions that best meet both University initiatives and these guidelines will be chosen for the sliders.
    • In case of a rejected submission, the submitter will be notified via email. In addition to being notified of the rejection, the correspondence will include direct feedback from the sliders guidelines for additional information about resubmitting revised content for a second review.
  • Resources

    • To create a smooth transition from the current system feeding the audience page sliders, Marketing will set up a meeting with those areas around campus that we expect will frequently submit to the sliders. This meeting will take place to establish and address concerns, fulfill any training needs for the system, and communicate available resources for a better user experience.
    • For those entities around campus without adequate design resources or to help design work meet slider guidelines without extensive work, Marketing’s Creative Services will create design options/internal templates meeting the needs of the advertiser and suitable for the slider guidelines.
    • Marketing’s Creative Services will create a bank of images and background designs for the convenience of the university community in creating ads for the sliders that meet visual requirements. These assets will be available through the marketing website. See also uvumarketing.photoshelter.com.
