The UA mission is to engage stakeholders in meaningful interactions that foster pride, advocacy and private support for the University of Washington. Fulfilling our mission requires us to build genuine, trust-based relationships, both internally and externally.
Replace jargon with common sense language where possible.
Rename pages and documents with descriptive titles and phrases.
Don’t Duplicate Pages and Documents
If you want to provide content to more than one audience, produce it in one place, but link to it in as many places as make sense.
If central UW already produces content, such as inclement weather policies and closure statuses, do not copy and publish an additional page with them. Instead link to the main UW inclement weather page or pages.
Re-evaluate Your Area’s Content
Different pages will need to be evaluated on different schedules. When you produce content, decide how frequently it will need to be vetted for currency, and schedule future evaluations ahead.
