Personal Webs Policy

Loyola Marymount University supports the research and communications needs of faculty, staff, students, and campus religious by providing space on university web servers for community members to create their own personal web pages.  Personal websites published on University web servers are subject to all existing laws, University policies, and the guidelines and procedures set forth in this policy.

4                     Authors may not use any official University logos or marks on personal web pages.

5                     Personal web pages shall not include, nor link to web pages that include material that, upon viewing, could create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive learning or working environment.
