Web Content Editors

Welcome to the DSU Web Content Editor team! We thank you for the part you play in keeping Dixie’s website accurate and up to date.

What are Web Content Editors?

Web Services has a limited team, and the DSU website consists of thousands of pages. We do not have the resources to review all of the pages and confirm they are functional and up to date. If every department appoints a Web Content Editor to review and edit their pages, the web team can focus on making a better, safer, more reliable website, and everyone can enjoy the most accurate and helpful information.

How can I become a Web Content Editor?
