Web identity standards define minimum requirements for the look, feel, and functionality of all official Jackson State University® websites. These standards fall under the umbrella of the Jackson State University® overall publications standards, with which all websites must comply. This web guide is for anyone who creates or maintains official Jackson State University® websites. Please visit www.jsums.edu/webguide for the most recent version of these standards and requirements.
Jackson State University® websites must meet professional standards in content, usability, and accessibility. These standards of uniformity offer a consistent, user-friendly experience to the Jackson State University® community and to those who use JSU’s websites.
