UPDATING PUBLICATIONS/CORRESPONDENCE WITH LINKS TO
www.kutztown.edu
If you have any publications (letters, emails, booklets, PDFs, fliers, etc.) that include links to the Kutztown University website, you will want to check and update any of those links. While we did what we could to preserve links on the new site (for instance, all short URL Redirects, see below, setup through my office remain active), some links changed with the launch of the new website.
Note: The following URL redirects are in place on our website: https://www.kutztown.edu/URLRedirects.

WEBSITE TRAINING SESSION FOR STUDENT WORKERS
Do you hire students to assist in website tasks? Perhaps you are looking for a training session, or training refresher for yourself. We have scheduled one session every week in August for these needs. All users must go through training in order to gain access to the CMS. Users can sign up for a session at this link. Without signing up, participants will not have proper permissions in place, and training will not be effective. Please contact Kelly Smith  with any questions.
