Determining the Overseer of a Marshall University Web Page


In certain situations, it’s useful to be able to find out who is responsible for the content on a Marshall University website, as well as how to contact that person to report a problem or error.


Each website on the Marshall University web server requires that a faculty or staff member agree to serve as overseer for that site.    Being a site overseer means that you have agreed to be responsible for the content of the site, and to serve as point of contact if problems with your site are encountered.

There are two easy methods for determining the overseer of a site on the Marshall web server.   Sites using the Marshall University template and shared footer will display a small green envelope icon in the bottom right hand corner of the pages on the site.   See image below:

Clicking on this envelope will take you to the Overseer detail page for that particular site.   On the overseer detail page, you’ll be given the name and email address of the faculty or staff member responsible for site content.   An example overseer detail report is displayed in the image below:

If the site isn’t using the shared footer, you can visit the Overseer lookup page directly, and enter the site name in the form on the page to obtain the same information.
