  1. Institutional Pages
    1. The official Roane State Community College web site serves two primary purposes:
      1. to serve as the primary public relations, marketing and recruiting vehicle for the college. It is intended to provide prospective students a means of accessing the information necessary for enrolling as a student at Roane State.
      2. to provide the faculty, staff, current students, alumni, and the community at large information about the college that may be of interest.
    2. The Webmasters have primary responsibility for the format and appearance of the web site; the Public Relations Office has responsibility for content review.
  2. Faculty and Staff Personal Web Pages
    1. Roane State faculty and staff are encouraged to publish and maintain their own personal web pages. The college is not responsible for personal online content. In addition, the college reserves the right to revoke the privilege of web publishing from anyone at any time. This would generally occur only when a person publishes content that would be considered offensive, a copyright violation or contrary to the nature and vision of Roane State Community College. Official Roane State Community College logos may not be used on these pages.
    2. Technical assistance relating to personal home pages is generally not available from the Webmasters or IT although every effort will be made to provide assistance if needed.

      1. be kept up to date with accurate information.
      2. be free of spelling and grammatical errors.
      3. contain no illegal copyrighted materials.
