The University Communications Web Team is responsible for Pitt’s Institutional presence on the World Wide Web. We provide consultation regarding online graphic standards and best practices, and collaborate with administrative and academic units on a wide range of strategic online communications initiatives.

University Web Standards

Adhering to University Web standards helps you represent the University’s brand to audiences, provide a positive user experience, and meet accessibility requirements

Web Publishing Best Practices

Following best practices helps to make sure that your site is easy to use, performs well in search engine optimization, and offers an engaging user experience across all devices.
