Becoming A WCM Publisher

If you or a member of your team need access or specific provisioning to the Web Content Management system (WCM), have your manager complete the Request WCM Access form on your behalf. Additionally, all users must first complete an online Canvas course, demonstrating an acceptable level of understanding of accessibility standards and usability best practices prior to being provisioned into the WCM.

  1. Web Publisher Canvas Course
  2. Request WCM Access (may require Dean/designee approval)


  • Completing this course is required to gain edit permissions.
  • Bi-annual recertification will be required to maintain publishing privileges.
  • If you are not provisioned, you can contact the Web Publisher in your area to make changes to your website or submit a service ticket.
  • Additional steps are required to manage a campus Trumba events calendar.
