Official College Pages
All official St. Mary's College of Maryland Web pages (that is, those which are intended as official public information about academic and administrative departments, offices, and other functions of the College) will adhere to the following standards because those standards are built into the Cascade CMS as part of the provided templates. By using the Cascade CMS and provided templates, your site will automatically meet all requirements.
All official pages of the SMCM Web site include the standard header and footer shown here:
The College logo (with tag and seal) appears on every official College page as part of the header. If the College logo is used elsewhere on an official page, it must be taken from the Cascade image library and used without modification to color or configuration (layout).
Within the College header there are two universal navigation menus (an organizational menu and an audience menu). The anatomy of a College Web page is shown here:
Navigational breadcrumbs are built into all official pages. To learn how to use them, see the Technical Guide.
The SMCM Web site uses Arial and Georgia fonts. Fonts, sizes, spacing, and leading are all set in the cascading style sheets and cannot be changed by the end user.
