Web Content Management Question or Request

General Information

Microsoft SharePoint offers a rich set of web content management tools and serves as the CMU’s web platform. Leveraging native SharePoint features like security and workflow, departments are able to establish a public or audience-specific (internal) web presence that can be managed however their needs require.

The feature set available to a content editor and/or author on www.cmich.edu continues to grow and improve. Some of the capabilities of the University’s web platform include:

  • An infrastructure architected for high availability, secure access, and content protection, including clustered and load balanced servers, 24/7 monitoring, regular backups, and a warm backup site in Southeast Michigan for emergency purposes.
  • Automatic adjustment of pages to make them usable on desktops, phones, and tablets.
  • Many native and custom Web Parts to simplify most of the site-building process.
  • A custom design process managed by University Communications and OIT for colleges and key departments to establish a unique web presence for themselves.
  • Active link checking and correction so editors can focus on message rather than broken links.
  • Online help and documentation content editors, designers and developers.

The Office of Information Technology is committed to sound data stewardship. To ensure that www.cmich.edu remains secure, content editors and site owners must comply with the following policies:



All faculty, staff, and students are eligible for technical support. Departments and colleges can create new sites and delegate permissions as necessary. Permissions to create and modify content vary by individual department policy and preferences.


There is currently no charge for this service.
