Website Headers and Footers

Website visitors typically expect to find certain kinds of information in the header and footer of a website. Below are suggestions to ensure that your website follows established best practices for the web, while aligning with your university's visual identity.


Site Header

The site title assures website visitors that they have landed on the correct website. Most often, the site title will be the name of your department, but it could also be the name of an individual, project, or event, depending on the type of site.



Site Footer

The site footer is a great place to add a footer menu for non-critical site links, social media links as well as contact information. The footer area will be a consistent area of all pages on your site.
