Blog locations

Links to blogs should not appear on the official page or navigation for a department, except for a dean/administrator’s blog or featured blog, if desired.

Submitted comments

Blog authors may choose to turn the comment functionality on or off for their blog. All comments must be approved by a Blog Publisher before they are posted.

If the Blog Publisher chooses to accept comments for a blog, he is responsible to review the comments and approve them to be posted. The Blog Publisher is also responsible for the content of the approved comments.
