Updating the college website

  • If you need an update made to the college’s website, contact your department administrator. Most departments and offices have someone trained to update the site. If there is no one in your area who is trained, email your changes to the Assistant Director of Communications, Kelly Sobers.
  • Always include the url for where you need changes made and please be very specific about what needs to change. Ex: “Please change this phone number 352-555-1111 to 352-555-2222.
  • If photos need to be added, do not embed the photos in a Word document or in the email. Attach photos as a jpg attachment to the email.
  • Updating the college’s site is not difficult to do; you just need to attend a one-hour training session offered by UF Health Web Services. You can sign up by clicking the link for the date/time you’d like to attend: Once you have completed training, contact the Assistant Director of Communications, Kelly Sobers via email for formal permission to have access to the pages you need.
